2010 Tribal Leadership Summit
University of Washington
Friday, May 14, 2010
The Tribal Leadership Summit is an opportunity for University of Washington and Tribal Leaders to gather and discuss issues of importance to indigenous communities.
The focus of the 2010 summit will be on creating additional partnerships between area Tribes and the University of Washington. An overview of a Tribal Bioenergy collaboration supported by the National Science Foundation will be presented as a model for University & Tribal partnerships.
The 2009 Tribal Leadership Summit introduced the concept of Community Based and Tribal Participatory Research and explored the potential areas of interest in which tribes and the UW can collaborate. 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.
