USET collectively represents 26 federally recognized Tribes at the regional and national level to promote Indian leadership, improve the quality of life for American Indians, and protect Indian rights and resources on Tribal lands.

Halbritter and other representatives for the Oneida Indian Nation are scheduled to meet this week with top officials of the National Football League about the Nation’s Change the Mascot campaign.
