Tribal Leader / Scholar Forum
The NCAI Policy Research Center’s 13th Tribal Leader/Scholar Forum provides an opportunity for researchers, practitioners, community members, and others to present their findings to tribal leaders, policymakers, and tribal members during NCAI's Mid Year Conference.
Our theme for the 2018 Tribal Leader/Scholar Forum is Lighting the Way: New Paths from Research to Policy. This theme reflects the desire to shed light on future directions for policy in a way that is deeply informed by research and data in the context of tribal cultures and values. The Forum will take place on June 5, 2018 in Kansas City, MO.
