They will present findings from the study, "Residence, Citizenship, and Connectedness for Young Adult American Indians" is part of the Tribal Leader/Scholar Forum session on "Connecting Across Distance & Difference: Tribal Citizenship in a New Era."

Using an online survey, the study sought preliminary insight into the following questions: How engaged do non-resident tribal citizens feel with their Native nations? How engaged would they like to be? How can positive connections and engagement between off-reservation tribal citizens and on-reservation communities and tribal government be facilitated?

The summary report is now available.
