2009 Tribal Leadership Summit
University of Washington
Friday, April 10, 2009
The Tribal Summit is an opportunity for University of Washington and Tribal Leaders to dialogue on issues relevant to indigenous communities. The focus of the 2009 summit will be on new partnerships between area Tribes and the University of Washington including a presentation on a research project collaboration that is a model for University & Tribal partnerships.
The 2008 Tribal Leadership Summit focused on the recruitment and retention of Native American students, faculty and staff; a longhouse-style facility; activity in response to issues raised at the 2007 summit; and the formulation of a Memorandum of Understanding.
The Summit was instituted in 2007 within the framework of the Washington State Centennial Accord, which recognizes tribal sovereignty and calls for government to government conversation around issues facing tribal communities.
