Tribes support Sovereignty Institute at University of Minnesota

 


All 11 tribes in Minnesota have endorsed the creation of the Tribal Sovereignty Institute at the University of Minnesota in Duluth.

The Minnesota Indian Affairs Council passed a resolution last month to support the new endeavour. Through the institute, tribes will play a key role in educating students, state employees and the general public about their unique status as governments.

“We believe this partnership with Indian tribes is a win-win for the University and the Native nations of Minnesota,” Tadd Johnson, the director of graduate studies within the American Indian Studies at UMD, said in a press release. “We intend to devote a great deal of time and effort into making the Institute a fully-staffed, fully-functioning partnership with Indian tribes.”
