United Tribes selected for Inaugural Parade

Bismarck, North Dakota (UTN) 1-09

A group of Native veterans from the United Tribes Technical College of Bismarck, North Dakota, will also march in the national parade for the new President on January 20th in Washington, DC. The Inaugural Committee officially extended an offer during December to the college to march in the 56th Inaugural Parade.

The United Tribes veterans will be those who have served in Middle East conflicts. They will be among representatives from across the country in the historic parade down Pennsylvania Avenue from the Capitol to the White House following the Presidential Swearing-in Ceremony on the steps of the Capitol.

Veterans who will be part of the United Tribes entry include employees and students. United Tribes Chief of Staff Wes Long Feather is organizing the group. Participants will also represent the state’s five tribes, who govern the college: Three Affiliated Tribes of Fort Berthold, Spirit Lake Tribe, Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa.
