Students research the structure of tribal governance and construct a leadership chart.
Tribal leaders have a very diverse set of roles and responsibilities. One of these responsibilities is to direct stewardship of the land. The way tribal lands are managed today will determine the future of land availability and use. In this lesson, the students should begin to understand who their tribal leaders are and how they make decisions about the land.
