The goal of this workshop is to foster a better relationship between state/Federal agencies and Oregon Indian tribes through gaining a better understanding of the government-to-government relationship so that the agencies can work more effectively with Indian tribes. Participants will learn about tribal treaties, government structures, protocols, and tribal court systems. Participants will also learn from other participant’s experiences, and be encouraged to discuss how they can foster greater communication between the agencies and tribes, and forge a better partnership.
