USET SPF continues to seek a modernized, 21st century relationship with the federal government. It is time for a new model that promotes a truly diplomatic, nation-to-nation relationship between the U.S. and Tribal Nations, and that empowers each Tribal Nation to define its own path. This mission should inform each action taken by this Administration affecting Tribal Nations. USET SPF is committed to working in partnership with all branches of government to achieve federal Indian policy reflective of the capabilities of 21st century Tribal Nations, as well as our inherent sovereignty and status as governments.
