The summit is intended for anyone who cares about better research that can help tribes achieve their economic and social objectives. Join tribal leaders, social science researchers, policymakers, and others as they learn about and discuss the latest research that can help tribal economies flourish. Even if you can’t attend the entire event, organizers welcome your participation.

Researchers will briefly present their findings in an accessible way, with tribal leaders and practitioners giving their reactions, followed by panel discussions. In addition, researchers will identify what policymakers can learn from the research evidence, and tribal leaders will explain what they’d like to know from future research.
