Developing a renewable energy project on tribal or Indian country land present legal and cultural complexities that must be addressed prior to, during, and throughout the entire development life cycle. Managing the relationship between industry, tribal governments, and tribal community members is important to establishing and maintaining harmonious relationships between stakeholders throughout the energy development process. Attendees to this conference will come away with an understanding of federal Indian law, tribal sovereignty, tribal government structures, tribal dispute resolution systems, and the elements of successful project development in Indian country. Engaging in conference discussions will be multiple governmental and tribal organizations such as the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Bureau of Land Management, as well as multiple tribal and Indian Country project developers.
Multiple case studies of actual projects will provide insights for working more effectively with tribes and on the various policies related to environmental and cultural resource issues, while still developing energy in a cost-effective manner.
