VISION STATEMENT

The Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Section 166 program grantees have a unique historical relationship as sovereign tribal nations within a nation, and share a vision of serving dramatically growing communities within a context that embraces the traditional cultural values, beliefs and ways of our people.

For this fundamental reason, it is our shared vision that the WIA, Section 166 program be administered in a consistent manner conducive to the traditional cultural values, beliefs and ways of the people it is designed to serve.

In order that our shared vision results in policies that respect and honor our partnership at all levels within the Department of Labor, which includes an established policy committed to Indian self-determination that can be fulfilled in a meaningful and measurable way, we pursue government to government relations to collaborate with the Department of Labor.

As members of sovereign tribal nations, we view the ultimate outcome of our programs as the improvement of the economic well-being of all Native People and the economic and social advancement of all Native Communities.
