DescriptionThe Governor's Office of Indian Affairs, recognizing the importance of sovereignty, affirms the government-to-government relationship and principles identified in the Centennial Accord to promote and enhance tribal self-sufficiency and serves to assist the state in developing policies consistent with those principles.

In 1969, the office was established to function as an Advisory Council to the Governor. After ten years, the Council was abolished and replaced by a gubernatorially appointed Assistant for Indian Affairs. Renamed the Governor's Office of Indian Affairs, it has continued to serve as liaison between state and tribal governments in an advisory, resource, consultation, and educational capacity.
