Tribes support Sovereignty Institute at University of Minnesota

From Indianz.com, here. An excerpt:

All 11 tribes in Minnesota have endorsed the creation of the Tribal Sovereignty Institute at the University of Minnesota in Duluth.

The Minnesota Indian Affairs Council passed a resolution last month to support the new endeavour. Through the institute, tribes will play a key role in educating students, state employees and the general public about their unique status as governments.

“We believe this partnership with Indian tribes is a win-win for the University and the Native nations of Minnesota,” Tadd Johnson, the director of graduate studies within the American Indian Studies at UMD, said in a press release. “We intend to devote a great deal of time and effort into making the Institute a fully-staffed, fully-functioning partnership with Indian tribes.”
