Thank you to all those who attended our 2020 State-Tribal Policy Symposium: Advancing Investments in Indian Country.
This year’s symposium had attendees from each tribal nation in Montana and more from across the country. We had tribal leaders, lawyers, students, community members, American Indian business owners, state legislators, and more.
This was our first time doing this event virtually and we learned so much. We appreciate everyone who attended – whether on zoom or by watching our Facebook live. We want to thank everyone who filled out an evaluation which will help inform our work moving forward.
You can find our most updated version of the State Budget Handbook for Indian Country online. This handbook mirrors the agenda we walked through at the Symposium. However, it is a useful tool even if you were not able to attend. We also hope you’ll check out all of our State-Tribal work here.
For those who weren’t able to make it, or for those of you who want to watch again, you can find recordings of each session at the following links:
Session 1 - The State Budget and Indian Country
Session 2 - Legislative Session 101 – Crash Course
Session 3 - Panel: Elevating American Indian Voices at the Capitol: Current Investments and Future Opportunities
Session 4 - Testimony, Advocacy, and Community Engagement
Session 5 - Keynote, Tara Houska
Again, thank you for your support for this year’s State-Tribal Policy Symposium.
