The address is planned not only as a response to President Bush's State of the Union address, which will take place on January 23, but also as a forum for relaying to the President, the American public and Indian Nations the general state of America's Indian nations. Themes will include: economic development; trust reform; the protection of American Indian tribal sovereignty; homeland security; and the many other issues currently facing Indian nations.
