Tribal Law and Policy Institute Announcements
Introducing Our New Logo
The new Tribal Law & Policy Institute logo was created by Native artist Sam English (Turtle Mountain Chippewa) in 2010 for a major TLPI project--the National Resource Center for Tribes. Over the last 24 years, Sam English has created approximately 80 poster print images for various American Indian programs relating to healing, environment, and education. Then, and now, the logo embraces a vision that is rich in symbolism.
This logo represents a vision of past, present, and future, through the depiction of children, adults, and elders encircled by the protective eagle's wings. The extended family is in the center of the circle to honor the families and communities that we serve. According to some teachings, the west represents the beginning of all life and the direction of the Spirit World. The family is facing west to honor the ancestors who continue to help us from the Spirit world.

TLPI Event Photos
We held our first "Addressing Violence against Indian Women Issues" tuition-based training session in October 2015 at Mystic Lake Hotel in Prior Lake, Minnesota. The training consisted of two tracks:
1. "Incorporating Indigenous Traditions and Practice in our Work with Victim/Survivors"
2. "Strengthening Tribal Laws to Protect Native Women Families"
Participants at each training were provided publications that they can take back to their communities. Meals were provided, as well.
