“Celebrating Respect, Culture and Education”

We celebrate respect for tribal sovereignty and the respect we have for one another. We celebrate the many vibrant cultures that comprise Indian Country, and educational opportunities that enhance understanding of native issues and the government-to-government relationship.

Who We Are

Formed in 2002, SAIGE is the first national non-profit organization representing American Indian and Alaska Native Federal, Tribal, State, and local government employees.

SAIGE hosts an outstanding Annual National Training Program, open to all, focused on professional development, leadership and topics related to the complex Federal Indian Trust Responsibility. Integral to this, SAIGE provides specialized training sessions for Veterans and Youth.
