Governor's Interstate Indian Council

The GIIC is made up of state Indian Affairs Offices and Commissions from across the country and has been in existence since 1949.

The mission of GIIC is to promote and enhance government to government relations between the tribes and states; respect and recognize the individual sovereignty of the tribes and the states; support the preservation of traditional Indian culture, language and values; and encourage socioeconomic development aimed at tribal self-sufficiency.
