Government to Government

Government to Government Training (1 Day)

01-03-SP14

This course is sponsored by the Governor’s Office of Indian Affairs. It is a one-day session covering a tribal historical perspective, legal issues, tribal sovereignty & tribal government.

    Washington State’s 1989 Centennial Accord mandates the Governor’s Office of Indian Affairs to provide training to state agencies 'on information with which to educate employees and constituent groups as defined in the accountability plan about the requirement of the government to government relationship.'

      Recently, the State/Tribal Relations Training has undergone major revision in an effort to stay timely and current. The one-day training session covers a tribal historical perspective, legal issues, tribal sovereignty and tribal government. The training allows sufficient time for questions and should assist state employees in furthering their relationship with Washington State’s twenty-nine Tribes. After completing the training, attendees should have a much better understanding of Tribes, their people and unique culture, and an enhanced awareness of the importance of multi-culturalism. Each attendee will be provided with a user-friendly reference book to continue furthering their understanding of contemporary native culture.

        The Governor’s Office of Indian Affairs is anxious to provide this training state-wide to as many people as possible to foster the spirit of cooperation and partnership in the continuing evolution of the government-to-government relationship.

          Intended Audience: All interested employees.
