As part of its mission to support tribal economic prosperity, the Center for Indian Country Development (CICD) at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis conducts and supports policy-relevant research on key questions that matter for Indian Country. We invite you to join us December 1–2 for an open discussion of new insights and opportunities at CICD’s annual research summit. The theme of this year’s summit is Unlocking Our Full Economic Potential.
The 2022 summit will feature panels of tribal leaders and federal policymakers discussing tribal sovereignty in research and data collection as well as opportunities to inform policy and fiscal decisions. The summit will cover a variety of topics related to economic prosperity in Indian Country, from tribal government bonding to census differential privacy to pandemic recovery. Social scientists and rising student researchers will briefly present their findings in an accessible way, with tribal leaders and practitioners giving their reactions. CICD staff will also demonstrate tools that policymakers and practitioners can use to inform their decision-making.
The summit is intended for stakeholders who care about better research that can help tribes achieve their economic and social objectives. Even if you can’t attend the entire event, we welcome your participation in individual sessions. We hope you’ll join us for this important conversation.
