The Native Nations Institute would like to help tribes to strengthen ties with off-reservation citizens, whether they have moved away from the their nation’s land base, or never lived on tribal lands in the first place. Are you a citizen of a federally recognized American Indian tribe or Alaska Native village, aged 18-29, who is living outside the boundaries of his or her Native nation? We invite you to take a short survey about your experiences and add your perspective to the conversation.
The purpose of the project is to answer two questions: 1. Are there meaningful ways for Native young people to participate in the community as citizens, even while living “off-reservation”? 2. How can tribes facilitate enduring connections and engagement with their young adult, off-reservation populations?
