Native American residents of Coconino County are invited to the Inter-tribal Advisory Council (ITAC) meeting to be held on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at 5:30 p.m. MST. The meeting will take place at the Coconino County Administrative Center, 219 East Cherry Avenue in Flagstaff. Established in 2001 by the Coconino County Board of Supervisors, ITAC acts as an official liaison and communication link between Native American communities and county governmental agencies. The council's objectives are to review and make recommendations to the Coconino County Board of Supervisors concerning existing and proposed city, county, state, federal and tribal legislation affecting Native Americans in Coconino County. ITAC's goals are to rotate and conduct ITAC meetings at one of the Native American tribes in Northern Arizona to broaden visibility of the council and to hear concerns and issues from constituents; outreach to Native American tribal communities by actively sponsoring and participating in regional events to expand tribal connections; recruit Native American individuals to become involved in County boards, commissions, committees and councils; continue to strengthen relationship between ITAC and Board of Supervisors; and initiate fundraising opportunities for ITAC events and activities to benefit tribal people and communities. ITAC hosts monthly meetings year-round, which are open to the public.
