From the Willamette Partnership comes this opportunity to attend free webinars on working in Indian country.

Working in Indian Country

Designed specifically for non-tribal members, this series will help professionals working with indigenous and tribal communities understand the broader context of US-tribal relations, dig into how to craft a successful land acknowledgment, and glean helpful tips on culturally responsive ways to engage with tribes in the Pacific Northwest.

Federal Indian Policy

The kickoff to the “Working in Indian Country” series is an overview of the federal government’s policies toward indigenous people since the founding of our nation.

When: Wednesday, October 20, 2021, 11:00 am-12:00 pm PST

Land Acknowledgments

Land acknowledgments are a hotly debated topic both within and outside of indigenous communities. Why should people do them, and why shouldn’t people do them?

When: Wednesday, November 3, 2021, 1:00 pm-2:00 pm PST

Working in Indian Country

Capping off the series is a high-level overview of how non-indigenous people can build meaningful, culturally-responsive relationships with tribes in the Pacific Northwest.
