This conference is held every year in Albuquerque, NM, the week before Thanksgiving (November 13-17), and is a great opportunity to share, collaborate, and learn about real world applications of geospatial technologies in Indian Country. It is open to all Tribal GIS Professionals, as well as partners in government and the private sector.
The conference features a variety of networking and sponsorship opportunities, informative presentations, and hands-on workshops. Educational field trips are also commonly offered to interested participants. Because of the diversity of GIS users in Indian Country, a broad range of topics is covered; representatives working in transportation, natural resources, historical preservation, social sciences, and just about any geospatial field benefit from the content offered.
Do you work for a government agency or nonprofit organization and want to present a project to a tribal audience, or learn more about how to engage with a tribal entity in the geospatial field? Then get in contact with Suzi Smith, Bad River GIS & Mapping Specialist/WLIA member to plan a potential speaking opportunity, or come meet us and take in the conference in Albuquerque!
