Building a community

Welcome to the ASU American Indian Policy Institute's Official Blog.  The purpose of this blog is to provide an immediate way to get vital information out to Tribal Nations, to provide a more interactive space for information to get out to those working with Native Nations and to provide a more personal space for stories related. This is an educational space. Therefore, all writing is done by AIPI staff, will be vetted by leadership, and will have links or documentation to support concepts, ideas, and topics. If you have any concerns or suggestions about the blog please contact us directly.
