From January 3-11, 2022, “January in Tucson” (JIT), the flagship event of the University of Arizona’s Indigenous Governance Program, will again be offered live and in person on the University’s Tucson, Arizona campus. JIT is a series of short courses, each taught over three consecutive half days, focused on Native nation building—or the process by which a Native nation enhances its own foundational capacity for effective self-government and self-determined community development. The program is hosted by the University of Arizona’s internationally renowned Native Nations Institute and Indigenous People’s Law and Policy Program at the James E. Rogers College of Law.

At no other time in recent history have tribal leaders across Native America been challenged in ensuring the health and safety of Indian people.
