This panel will expand the focus of Sunday’s pre-conference workshop by discussing best practices and lessons learned from EOD leads from four different EPSCoR jurisdictions that are working with individuals, institutions, or organizations from Indigenous populations. Content will investigate (1) programs and best practices from four different jurisdictions (2) how approaches vary geographically, and (3) how programs that are effective in Native communities might be similar to or different than effective programming for other minority groups.
