|Indian Nations and Tribes Legislative Day|
Since 1995, the Arizona Commission of Indian Affairs, in cooperation with representatives from the state's Indian nations, facilitates an Indian Nations and Tribes Legislative Day on Tuesday of the second week of each regular legislative session.
Invitations are extended to tribal leaders, each member of the state legislature, Governor and other elected officials to pay tribute to the history and culture of the American Indian peoples and their contributions to the prosperity and cultural diversity of the United States.The day begins with a Joint-Protocol Session hosted by either the House of Representatives or Senate with floor privileges extended to tribal leaders to join their representative(s) during the session. The session traditionally begins with a posting of the colors, pledge of allegiance, invocation, brief comments from both the Senate President and Speaker of the House and features a keynote address by a Tribal Leader. Followed by activities and discussions between state and Indian nations and tribal leaders on issues of common interest.
