Tribal Organizations will focus on the organizational structures of tribal governments, related advocacy organizations and how these impact native nation communities today. Spanning from the historical period prior to colonization to contemporary native nation experiences, this class will help students to gain an appreciation of the diversity of governmental, political and social forms that tribes and tribal supporters have utilized. This includes tribal citizens, stakeholders, advocacy groups and allies. Issues of membership, financial diversification, cultural practices, and forms of accountability in native nations will be vital nodes of concern for our discussions. Intergovernmental native nation-building organizational efforts will also be discussed including dispute resolution/tribal courts and fishing advocacy. Lectures by tribal organizational leaders will provide examples of practical application and real-world context for class discussions.
