Constitutional making and remaking... these topics are critical to Native nation (re)building and “strengthening Indigenous governance,” the mission of the Native Nation Institute at the University of Arizona. The 2-day event will feature tribal leaders, scholars, and practitioners from across the U.S. – all in effort to provide participants with a diversity of perspectives and experiences on the best practices for strengthening tribal constitutions. The event will provide space for conversation with tribal leaders and experts on the importance of governmental foundations, and their impacts on Native nations.

The seminar is designed to equip leaders, and other decision makers with the knowledge and tools necessary for assessing their systems of governance. Participants will then explore analytical frameworks for evaluating community needs, strategies for strengthening governmental foundations, and follow up steps to ensure the long-term sustainability of tribal constitutional refinement efforts. Throughout the two-day event, Native leaders and other governance experts will share their knowledge and experience, while allowing participants ample opportunity to ask questions, collaborate with colleagues from other Native nations, and enjoy catered meals from the desert southwest.
