Sustaining and Advancing Indigenous Nations

Program Overview

Do you have an intense interest in the contemporary issues that challenge indigenous nations? Would you like to spend your days assessing the political, legal, cultural, and economic systems of indigenous nations and the impact the United States’ laws and American Indian policy have on their sovereignty? If so, then consider joining our Sustaining and Advancing Indigenous Nations program.

While studying our course on sustaining and advancing indigenous nations, you’ll get to explore the political, legal, economic, and social status of Indigenous people and their respective communities — both past and present. Our experienced instructors will showcase inherent Indigenous sovereignty, self-governance, self-determination, Native American law, and policies that affect development on indigenous lands in our current environment.

Don’t wait. Start your future in Sustaining and Advancing Indigenous Nations today.

Students at any Maricopa Community College may need to complete courses at more than one of our colleges.
