Tribally-Driven Research Agenda

This draft research agenda was derived from the 2005 Creating a Collective Vision for Indian Country session, a survey of national Native issue-focused organizations and NCAI Committee Chairs, existing issue-specific research agendas, tribal leaders´ 2008 budget priorities, and NCAI staff suggestions. This document represents an initial draft of a comprehensive tribal research agenda that is shared for review and refinement. This effort is ongoing and the agenda will evolve over time as the policy challenges that tribal leaders face and prioritize evolve. Refinements and adjustments to the agenda will occur annually in conjunction with NCAI´s Annual meeting.
