This course explores how Native nations are reclaiming their governance systems and creating governance tools that fit their cultures and advance their nation-building goals. Featuring the firsthand perspectives of more than 65 Native leaders and scholars, it provides an overview of the role of bureaucracies in advancing nation-building efforts, the keys to effective governmental administration and program management, and the distinct roles elected leaders and administrators should play in making effective management happen.
The Native Nations Institute for Leadership, Management, and Policy (NNI), housed at
The University of Arizona's Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy, serves as a self-determination, governance, and development resource for Indigenous nations in the United States, Canada, and elsewhere.
NNI was founded in 2001 by the Morris K. Udall Foundation (now Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation) and The University of Arizona.
