Obama giving Texas tribe hope for compensation


When President Barack Obama met with leaders of the 564 federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribes Nov. 5, he promised to end a history of broken promises. "I know what it means to feel ignored and forgotten, and what it means to struggle," Obama said, referring to his humble beginnings and a father who left when he was 2 years old. "So you will not be forgotten as long as I'm in this White House."
