Minnesota Tribal-State Relations Training

Tribal-State Relations Logo

Minnesota is home to 11 sovereign tribal nations, which collectively represent the sixth largest employer in the state and the majority of the state’s 61,000 American Indians. Minnesota Tribal and State Relations Training prepares state agency employees with the knowledge and tools to consult with tribes on matters of mutual interest. Participants learn departmental expectations, executive orders as they change with each administration, and ways to promote state-tribal agreements.

The vision of the Tribal-State Advisory Group on American Indian Training and Consultation is a community that values and promotes knowledge, understanding and respect for American Indian Governance, history, and ways of life. The mission is to provide training and education for Minnesota state employees about American Indian tribal governments, histories, cultures, and traditions in order to empower state employees to work effectively with American Indians, and promote authentic and respectful relationships between state agencies and American Indian tribes.

April 16-17, 2018 at Prairie's Edge Casino Resort Cancellation Update - 

Dear Tribal-State Relations Training registrants,

We are sincerely sorry we were forced to cancel the Tribal-State Relations Training on April 16 &17 at Upper Sioux Community’s Prairie’s Edge Casino & Resort.  This decision to cancel was made because of the untimely winter blizzard that hit Minnesota over the weekend – driving conditions were not safe throughout Minnesota.

The question now asked – Will the Tribal-State Relations Training be rescheduled? 
And the answer is yes.

On May 2, our planning team will meet to discuss how we will offer the training to you who were registered and paid for the April training.   We will send an email to you of training options when the rescheduled date is determined.

Thank you for your patience and continued interest in the Tribal-State Relations Training.  As with every training …… Our Mission:  To provide training and education for Minnesota state employees about American Indian tribal governments, histories, cultures and traditions in order to empower state employees to work effectively with American Indians and promote authentic and respectful relationships between state agencies and American Indian tribes.
