WASHINGTON (AP) — Native Americans from around the country plan to meet with President Barack Obama next week.

He'll host the White House Tribal Nations Conference at the Department of the Interior on Nov. 13.

The Indian Health Service says the conference will provide leaders from the 566 federally recognized tribes the chance to speak with the president and members of the White House Council on Native American Affairs.

Each tribe has been invited to send one representative.

It will be the fifth such gathering.
