‘Barack Black Eagle Obama’ To Host Tribal Leaders At The White House

‘Barack Black Eagle Obama’ To Host Tribal Leaders At The White House

President Obama will host Native American tribe leaders at the White House on Wednesday, as part of the annual White House Tribal Nations Conference.

As McClatchy’s Anita Kumar points out, Obama is known to many Native Americans as “Barack Black Eagle Obama” after receiving an American Indian name in 2008 during his campaign for president.

Obama was formally welcomed into the Crow Indian Reservation in Montana after he was adopted by a couple on the reservation.

“I like my new name: Barack Black Eagle. That is a good name,” Obama said at the time.

Obama’s adopted father Hartford “Sonny” Black Eagle passed away in 2012.
