A tribal nation in Minnesota will hold its own meeting on Thursday in Minneapolis, Minnesota, according to a local newspaper.
The Oglalla Lakota National Council announced the meeting at its monthly conference, which is held in the Twin Cities.
A Native American leader said he hopes the gathering will bring together tribal leaders, residents and other groups from across the nation.
The council is a regional council of tribes and other tribal groups.
The meeting is being held in Oglalas Falls, the northern part of Minnesota.
Oglalla Sioux Nation is the largest of the Oglaas Sioux Nation and is located in South Dakota.
Tribal leaders said the meeting is intended to provide an opportunity for people of different races and cultures to talk and learn about the history of their nations.
