BIA plans meetings on modernization initiative
The Bureau of Indian Affairs will hold a series of meetings in September to discuss a "modernization initiative."

Assistant secretary Carl Artman wants to hear from tribes about ways the BIA can improve. “Times have changed and will continue to change,” he said. “We need to ensure that the government-to-government relationship between the tribes and the federal government continues to function well into the future. These meetings are an opportunity to explore such changes and how best to modernize Indian Affairs operations to better serve Indian Country.”

The meetings run from September 4-September 28 and will be held throughout the BIA's 12 regions.
