The Hoover Institution hosted "Renewing Indigenous Economies Policy Symposium" on Tuesday, October 2, 2018 from 12:00pm - 1:30pm EST.
Last year, the Hoover Institution launched its Renewing Indigenous Economies Research Initiative to understand what institutions work best for local peoples, economies, and cultures. The annual Indigenous Economies policy symposium will update the D.C. community on what has been called a "renaissance in tribal self-governance" and an "economic civil rights movement." This year's event featured the founders of the Alliance for Renewing Indigenous Economies, an international group of scholars and tribal leaders dedicated to secure land rights, self-government, and fiscal independence for indigenous communities.
