Harvard Project "Honoring Nations" Symposium, September 10-11, 2004
Convened by the Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development on September 10-11, 2004 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the symposium “Honoring Nations: Learning from Each Other - Improving Tribal Government Performance” celebrates, documents, and disseminates the stories of the outstanding programs in self-governance that are daily emerging from the Native nations and highlights tribal government successes. It helps expand the capacities of Native nation builders by enabling them to learn from each others’ successes. The high public visibility and news coverage of Honoring Nations also permit non-Native policymakers, the media, and the general public to see what Native nations are actually doing in the drive for self-determination. Established in 1998, Honoring Nations’ experiences are the foundation for the teaching, advising, and policy analysis from the partnership between the Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development (Harvard Project) and the Native Nations Institute at the University of Arizona. The Indigenous Governance Database features selected presentations and Q&A sessions from the Honoring Nations symposium held in 2004, listed below.
