The Native Nations Institute was invited to convene a panel discussion with more than two hundred Alaska Native tribal government leaders, corporation leaders and staff, state and federal government officials, academics, and other community partners, at the Alaska Tribal Governance Symposium, November 15 - 16, 2016 in Fairbanks, Alaska. The University of Alaska Fairbanks Tribal Management Program and the Tanana Chiefs Conference hosted the event.
The NNI-facilitated symposium addressed topics ranging from traditional and modern tribal governance to Indigenous leadership, the role of health and wellness in governance, and tribal control over Indian child welfare. Selected videos from the event are available on the free Indigenous Governance Database and feature tribal leaders’ remarks and key aspects of the discussion.
