Tribal Self-Governance Virtual Conference: September 14 - 16, 2021

2018- Senate Hearing- THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF TRIBAL SELFGOVERNANCE: SUCCESSES IN SELFGOVERNANCE AND AN OUTLOOK FOR THE NEXT 30 YEARS

“Today’s hearing commemorates the 30th anniversary of the enactment of one of the most successful laws in Indian history, the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act Amendments of 1988.

This Act, passed by Congress in 1988, was the result of critical
input and leadership from tribes across our country, and marked
a significant turning point in tribal self-governance. In 1987, tribal leaders testified before this Committee that the policy of self-determination, which began with the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act of 1975, had resulted in greater utilization of services, increased access to education, stronger Indian families, and more effective tribal law enforcement.”
