They served even though at the time, they were not recognized as citizens of the United States.

"Native Americans were the largest per-capita in America to serve in the Great War<" said National World War One Centennial Commission member Terry Hamby. "There were 12,000 Native Americans that served. Over 800 gave their lives."

Hamby said he hopes the UTTC event will help tell a story that should be told.

For the current chairman of the United Tribes Technical College Board of Directors, the annual United Tribes Pow-Wow and the Tribal Leaders Summit have been “a family affair.”

David Flute is the chair of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate tribe. He said he’s been coming to the event for many years.

"My dad was chairman of the Tribe for a number of years," Flute said. "He also chaired United Tribes for a nunber of years in the 70s and 80s. So, I've seen this event grow."

Flute said it's a great event.
