Tribal Administration Handbook

The​ ​Tribal​ ​Sovereignty​ ​Institute​​ (TSI), within​ ​the​ ​Department​ ​of​ ​American​ ​Indian Studies​ ​at​ ​the​ ​University​ ​of​ ​Minnesota-Duluth, received a grant from the Bush Foundation to (1) create a tribal administration handbook for use by American Indian tribes across the country and (2) develop journal articles on subjects that will support tribal management capabilities.

Tribal nations represent the oldest existing governments in North America, yet no such handbook has ever existed, and only nominal scholarly publishing on this subject matter has occurred. The time is overdue, the demand is present, and the expertise is available to make this advancement, which is critical to ensuring continued evolution in tribal governance.

Please check back for a portal providing tribal government officials and administrators with access to the PDF version.
