Part One: How Did We Get Here? Understanding Tribes, Sovereignty and How It Impacts Services for Indigenous Children

This webinar series is sponsored by the Bipartisan Policy Center. There are nearly 3 million American Indian/Alaska Natives (AI/AN) living in the United States. However, too often the needs of tribal communities are an afterthought to Congress and policymakers. The first webinar includes a former Senator from ND and a professor on tribal issues to explore current disparities in children's services and ways to close these disparities. The second webinar features public officials from MN on model tribal-state collaboration; the link is here.  The third webinar is on tribes and states working together and features speakers from OR and NM; the link is here. This resource supports equity.
