The ceremony will include an honor song and blanketing ceremony and the President will be joined onstage by:

Lynn Malerba, Chief of the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut, who will introduce the President
Byron Nicholai, Youth hand drummer, Yu'pik Alaskan Native Village
Kelly Washington, Elder bird singer, Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community

The audience is primarily comprised of representatives from the 567 federally-recognized tribes that were invited to attend, as well as over 100 Native youth delegates.
