      One of the defining characteristics of Haudenosaunee existence is the

      Title: Administrative Law: Indian Tribes and the Federal Agency Maze
      Dates: Thursday, November 30 & Friday, December 1, 2006
      Location: Arizona State University, Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law
      Great Hall
      Tempe, AZ

      Website: http://www.law.asu.edu/ILP/MazeCLE

      Federal agencies create law on a daily basis with the potential to affect
      profoundly the rights of Indians and Indian tribes. Despite the
      often-overwhelming presence of federal agencies in tribal affairs, the
      impact of federal Administrative Law has not been explored in conventional
      Indian Law programs and conferences. This conference is designed to
      provide tribal officials and Indian law practitioners with a basic
      understanding of federal laws governing agency practices and procedures,
      and to generate an in-depth discussion of the impact of this field of law
      on tribal rights and authorities. In particular, the conference will
      examine the various laws that require federal agencies to consult with
      Indian tribes and their effects; determinations of tribal jurisdiction
      made by federal authorities; and strategies and techniques for influencing
      federal agency decision making. Sponsored by the Sandra Day O’Connor
      College of Law Indian Legal Program.

      The Conference theme was selected in part recognizing that significant
      administrative and legislative changes are taking place that affect
      current rehabilitation practices making it critical for tribal vocational
      rehabilitation (VR) programs and key stakeholders to understand that
      transition and change is inevitable; learn about the proposed changes and
      its impact on tribal VR programs, and determine how their roles will
      influence the development and implementation of state and tribal VR
      policies and standards.

      Effective changes in improving tribal VR practices and expanding VR
      services in Indian Country will require individual and collective
      involvement to ensure that tribal VR programs continue to design and
      provide culturally appropriate VR services that adequately address the
      needs of tribal consumers, including the participation of family members.
      Thus, "Making Life Better, One Individual at a Time" will involve
      embracing opportunities of transition and change, and recognition that the
      vision will be achieved if each and everyone undertake the tasks as
      leaders.
