Sovereign Nations of Virginia Conference
September 24, 2021
To build cooperative relationships between Virginia’s Tribal Nations and state agencies, the Rappahannock Tribe is hosting a tuition-free Sovereign Nations of Virginia Conference: Building Government-to-Government Relationships on September 24, 2021 at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in the Auditorium.
Based on the history of relations with state government and Virginia’s Indigenous population, the Sovereignty conference will help build relationships, understanding, and common ground needed to better the future for our Virginia Tribal communities and all Virginians.
Scholars and experts in Native American sovereignty from across the country will present and provide an opportunity for Tribal and state officials to approach and address issues we face as sovereign nations in the Commonwealth and to discuss how together we might address them more efficiently and respectfully for the benefit of all Virginians.
