TRIBAL COUNCIL FORUM: FROM INDIAN ACT TO TRUE GOVERNANCE

 

Who participates in this forum for tribal councils?

This forum is delivered to a gathering of councils and senior administrators that are members of a tribal council.

What will leaders and administrators learn?

Leaders and administrators develop an understanding of their inherent governance rights, the obligations they have under those rights, and the contrasting roles and responsibilities they have under the Indian Act. Participants will explore the strategies required to implement a transition over to the increased jurisdiction and control that is reflective of true governance.

Why would you take this forum?

Leaders and administrators leave with an understanding of the courses of action that can be taken to put true governance in place while continuing to manage their Indian Act obligations. They compose a vision around effective self-governance, that they can take back to their own communities as a resource for creating plans to develop self-government.

Who delivers this forum?

This workshop is delivered by Indigenous governance experts that understand First Nation communities, history, and law. All material used in the workshop is grounded in our legal, academic and community-based research.

How long does it take?

This forum is delivered over two full days.

Where are sessions held?

The forum takes place during a tribal council meeting of leaders and administrators. Two facilitators travel to your meeting place and deliver this workshop to as many as 100 people.

What is the cost?
