16th Annual Tribal Leader/Scholar Forum
June 20 - June 24
The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) Policy Research Center is holding the 16th Annual Tribal Leader/Scholar Forum during the NCAI Mid Year Conference & Marketplace on June 20-24, 2021.
The purpose of the Tribal Leader/Scholar Forum is to provide an opportunity for researchers, practitioners, community members, and others to present research and data findings to tribal leaders, policymakers, and tribal citizens. The forum is a space intended to connect research and data with current policy initiatives to ensure that decisions are strategic, proactive,and result in the best possible outcomes for tribal communities.
This year’s theme, Governance, Trust, and Culture in Research highlights the critical role of respectful tribal-academic research partnerships in planning, conducting, analyzing and reporting research that can benefit tribal nations and be used to support policy and decision-making. This call for presentations seeks proposals for presentations that address the theme and present research and data results that is relevant to tribal leaders and their priority areas. These presentations are in addition to speakers that are invited by NCAI to speak during the Tribal Leader/Scholar Forum.
