About Our Conference

The CIIC National Conference is the only indigenous construction industry national conference and trade show hosted by a higher education institution in the United States. Together, we, Architects, Engineers, Planners, Lawyers, Contractors, and Tribal Government Officials, provide the latest in industry trends, policies and best practices. Our specialized field of knowledge is geared to assist industry practitioners, tribal government agencies/divisions, and tribal enterprises for building in Indian Country. There will be plenty of opportunities to network, share stories and learn from each other’s successes. We emphasize the importance of tribal sovereignty, nation-centered building while honoring the past.
