LEADERSHIP AND COMMUNICATIONS IN INDIAN COUNTRY

     ​This four page report by NCAI outlines the key findings from interviews with 5 tribal leaders and tribal communications officers across the country. The conversations focused on exploring how communications helps in their daily work, how the communications playing field has changed over the years and how they have adapted, overcome barriers, and what the tools and activities are that make them more effective leaders and communicators.
