Tribal Management and Emergency Services Minor
Tribal management and emergency services provides an in depth cross-section of the tribal management and emergency services profession. At present, there are more than 575 recognized U.S. Tribal Nations. Each of these nations possess inherent rights of self-governance that are expected to simultaneously conduct governmental tribal functions while cooperating and complying with many local, state, and federal government regulations and laws.
This complex system of administration presents many challenges for Native Governments, particularly when faced with natural or man-made disasters that threaten tribal lands and interests. These threats to tribal communities are often compounded by lack of resources existing in reservation populations. Understanding the complex legal, historical, and cultural issues affecting tribal government management and provision of crisis response is essential to provide routine and emergency services to native communities.
