Self-Governance: An Expression of Tribal Sovereignty
A lecture by: Jay Spaan
Faculty Associate, Indian Gaming and Tribal Self-Governance Programs
Tribal nations pre-date the formation of the United States and governed themselves for millennia before European settlers occupied the lands. Nearly 200 years after the United States started negotiating treaties with Tribal nations, Tribal governments started taking back control and decision-making authority over the programs that serve their citizens and communities. Join us for this lunch lecture to learn more about Tribal Self-Determination and Self-Governance authorities and ways that Tribal Nations have used these authorities to redesign Federal programs to improve the lives of their citizens.
