We are pleased to host an exciting three-part training for up to 25 non-tribal floodplain practitioners and leaders (i.e. state, county, federal, non-profit staff and non-tribal member tribal staff ) who are interested in deepening their competency and capacity to engage and partner with tribes across the State. We are extremely pleased to partner with The Whitener Group, a tribally owned consultant team, who will be hosting the training series.

In three online trainings (April 29th 1:00-3:00/2 hrs, May 13th 1:00-2:30/1.5 hrs, and May 27th 1:00-2:30/1.5 hrs), participants will focus on expanding their knowledge of the foundations of federal Indian law, local tribal history, and tribal governments in Washington today. The training will be a mix of presentations, self-directed learning and facilitated group discussions. Participants will also conduct their own research on a local tribe of their choosing and participate in a facilitated dialogue on the results of that research.

We ask that registrants make a firm commitment to all three sessions and their own research time. So come prepared to “roll up your sleeves” for a rare chance for a meaningful dive into working with Washington State Tribes.

Your workshop hosts will be Ron Whitener, Bob Whitener and Jennifer Whitener Ulrich of The Whitener Group. To learn more about the trainers, check out their bios.

Space is limited to a max of 25 people and not all that register will be accepted. Please register by April 20th COB to be considered. TNC will contact you the by April 26th on whether or not you have been confirmed. Please reach out to Heather Cole: heather.cole@tnc.org for questions or for follow-up.
