Attorney: Obama visit overwhelmingly positive

Posted: Updated:
A North Dakota attorney and Native American rights activist says President Barack Obama's visit to the Standing Rock Reservation was overwhelmingly positive.
    
Chase Iron Eyes says he would have liked to hear some concrete plans dealing with Native American issues unveiled during Friday's visit. But he says that Obama's trip to North Dakota was an important gesture to Native American people.
    
Iron Eyes is a Bismarck attorney who recently moved back to Standing Rock. He runs a website called Last Real Indians, an indigenous people media network.
    
Obama during his speech in Cannon Ball said that the deck has been stacked against many Native Americans, but if the federal government does its part it can break the cycle.
