Data Management Task Force

Thursday, June 17, 2021, at 3:30 p.m. EDT

Government is data-driven and the federal government has failed to keep accurate, consistent, and comprehensive records for Native American Programs. Without this data, federal measures of progress in fulfilling its trust and treaty obligations to Tribal Nations are arbitrarily measured against prior year spending and the federal status quo that has left these programs chronically underfunded and sometimes inefficiently structured. As the driving force of government action, it is imperative that Tribal Nations and their advocates develop consensus solutions to these federal data deficiencies, so that Native American Programs can accurately reflect the policy priorities throughout Indian Country and better meet the trust and treaty obligations of the United States to Native peoples.
