At NCAI’s Mid Year Conference, attendees have the opportunity to come together to address issues critical to Indian Country. This year, the conference will occur virtually for the first time, providing tribal leaders and partners with a unique opportunity to discuss and work on the issues facing Tribal Nations directly from their respective homelands.
In addition to championing issues, our Mid Year conference is home to the 16th Annual Tribal Leaders/ Scholar Forum (TLSF). The purpose of TLSF is to provide researchers, practitioners, community members and others an opportunity to present research and data findings to tribal leaders, policymakers, and tribal citizens.
