Much of working for The People, is actively knowing how to problem solve, and at the same time, manage projects and programs.  Students will learn how to identify the most common logical fallacies (that have impacted you as an individual and your organization).  We will examine trends occurring in Indian Country that stagnate productivity and best practices that increase productivity.

Students will examine techniques useful for untangling complex communication (and controversial arguments) from the inside-out and vice versa. Through close evaluation, we will (1) determine how to ask the right questions; (2) will practice fact-finding in the search for the “real” reason something has occurred, and most importantly (3) how to appropriately address the issue(s) as they occur.

“Our homogenous version of sovereignty (as it pertains to our tribal identity, intra-governmental operations, economic development, jurisdictions, our collective, yet austere survival and mobility of all our many nations) has not begun, to feel the sting of modern congressional (plenary) angst that is driven by corporate greed. As history has taught us; when one Era ends, another begins.  Be ready”. —Brian Melendez
