SAIGE: Who we are

Formed in 2002, SAIGE is the first national non-profit organization representing American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) Federal, Tribal, State, and local government employees. SAIGE provides a forum on the issues, challenges, and opportunities of AI/ANs in the government workforce and works to foster a professional network among AI/AN government employees.
SAIGE is proud to host an outstanding Annual National Training Program focused on professional development, leadership and topics that are integral to the highly complex relationship known as the Federal Indian Trust Responsibility. As part of this program, SAIGE offers special training sessions for Veterans, and Youth. Additionally, local native communities in the area assist by providing cultural presentations.

This is a 3-day intensive course NOT included in the SAIGE agenda, with its own registration costs and system. All attendees of this course may get the government per diem rate at the Seneca Niagara Resrt by reserving their room in the SAIGE room block, the only way to get the government rate during this time. Participants in this separate course are welcome to join SAIGE participants in our evening events, to enhance networking capacity of both groups. This class is limited to the first 25 people signing up, and you do NOT have to be part of DOI in order to register.  Contact April Gonzalez at  april_d_gonzalez@ios.doi.gov  or at 505-563-5406  for more information or see    https://doitalent.ibc.doi.gov/enrol/index.php?id=3013
