Series explores Native nation buildingNative peoples are telling their success stories on radio and television, building on more than two decades of research from university professors who have spent decades trying to figure out why some tribal governments succeed where others don’t.

The Native Nations Institute at the University of Arizona produced those stories for a 10-part radio and TV series featuring roundtable discussions with Native political, business and community leaders, as well as scholars and educators.

The research lists five key areas that help lead to tribal government success. They include the following: asserting sovereignty, respecting culture, solid governing institution, exemplary leadership and a plan for the future.
