Class Description:
Minnesota is home to 11 sovereign Indian nations and c120,000 American Indian people. Tribes are among the top 20 employers in the state, and tribal jurisdiction impacts thousands of acres of land in Minnesota both within and beyond reservation boundaries. While tribes share prominent nation-to-nation diplomatic relationships with the U.S. federal government, tribal relationships with state agencies are increasingly significant. Since the administration of Governor Jesse Ventura, each Minnesota governor has implemented an executive order focused on state relations with Indian nations. Under current Governor Tim Walz, Executive Order 19-24 provides a considerable mandate for state agencies to develop and implement tribal consultation policies and to build associated partnerships.

This half-credit workshop will introduce participants to the legal and policy contexts in which contemporary tribal-state relations occur. We will explore the shifting history of federal Indian policy, the often contentious past of tribal-state interactions, current emphases on building government-to-government relationships, and potential future trends. Participants will consider how their own civic and professional trajectories may connect to Indian nations, and we will collaboratively draw conceptual and practical links between tribal affairs and other areas of study in the Humphrey School.
