Tribal Connections Roundtable - Tribal Treaties

Most Americans learn about the Founding Fathers but are told very little about equally important and influential Native diplomats and leaders of Indian Nations. Treaties lie at the heart of the relationship between Indian Nations and the United States. Understanding the importance of treaties is an essential step in understanding the history and legacy of U.S.–American Indian diplomacy from the colonial period through the present. 

Who Should Attend: We welcome any Department of the Interior staff and partners who are involved with tribes or who wish to learn more about working with tribes.

About Our Presenter, Kevin Gover:

Kevin is a citizen of the Pawnee Tribe of Oklahoma.

He received his bachelor’s degree in public and international affairs from the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University in 1978. He then earned his juris doctor degree from the University of New Mexico College of Law in 1981. Following law school, Kevin established a small Native American-owned law firm that specialized in federal Indian law. Gover, Stetson, Williams & West, P.C. grew into the largest Indian-owned law firm in the country and represented tribes and tribal agencies in a dozen states.​

In 1997, President Clinton nominated Kevin to serve as the Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs in the U.S. Department of the Interior. As the senior executive of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), he won praise for his efforts to rebuild long-neglected Indian schools and expand tribal and BIA police forces throughout the country. ​​

In 2003, he joined the faculty at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University and served on the faculty of the university’s Indian Legal Program, one of the largest such programs in the country. ​

Kevin was Director of the National Museum of the American Indian from 2007 to 2021. He became Under Secretary for Museums and Culture in 2021
