To achieve our mission of strengthening tribal sovereignty and leadership, the Department
of Tribal Governance engages with numerous partners across the state to provide place-based,
culturally relevant educational opportunities for Tribal Citizens and those who work
with Tribal Governments.
We partner with Tribal Governments, Alaska Native Organizations, Non-profits, State and Federal Agencies, as well as other University of Alaska programs, to create an increased understanding of the history, the strength, and the opportunities of and for Tribal Governance in Alaska. While all of our partners are not listed here, we have attempted to list those we work with most regularly to design and offer courses, workshops, and symposia.
