We Come for Good

More than twenty years have elapsed since the federal nexus for the creation of THPOs occurred yet the work of the THPO remains unevaluated holistically. What are the contributions that have been made socially, culturally, politically, academically, and economically? With little organizational or mission-centric uniformity between individual programs, should we expect greater homogenization of institutional forms in the future? Or does the diversity in programs underscore the very different cultural groups that comprise the modern political configurations of the indigenous people of North America? The Seminole Tribe THPO is a case study of one well-resourced office that is attempting to build capacity and pull up a seat to sit squarely at the table. The relative successes, or otherwise, of this strategy will ultimately be judged by the community it serves.
