Indian Self-Determination Act, Chandler, AZ; May 2 & 3, 2019 

Public Law 93-638, the Indian Self-Determination Education & Assistance Act is about Tribal Sovereignty. It is about the tribes’ right to self-determination and self-sufficiency. It is about the tribes’ right to assume direct control and operation of federal programs, and reshape the programs to meet their needs. The Act is a unique law that has been in place for over 40 years, and it is important to fully understand it and how to implement and administer P.L. 93-638 programs.

KIVA provides the most comprehensive training on the Indian Self-Determination Act not found anywhere else in Indian Country.

KIVA has unique, unmatched knowledge and expertise about the Indian Self-Determination Act. KIVA’s founder and president was directly involved on the technical amendments to the law; and leading the development of the implementing regulations.  He played a key role in developing the Department of Interior’s Indian Self-Determination policies, including the Awarding Officials’ Delegation of Authority.
