Our expanding data and research efforts
We are excited to share that we are expanding our data, research, and policy initiatives to help shape economic policy in Indian Country. Over the next 12 months, CICD will build additional capacity to launch a multi-year initiative to address persistent data gaps that exist in Indian Country. Alongside tribal governments and other data partners, CICD will collect and leverage new economic datasets to understand and advance tribal economic opportunities and will expand its role as an evidence-based resource for Indian Country leaders and policymakers.

Introducing our new CICD logo
You may have noticed our new logo, above, which features two important symbols in Indian Country: the eagle feather and a continuous circle. The feather represents CICD’s respect for Native people, culture, and worldviews. The circle represents the four seasons—winter, spring, summer, and fall—and symbolizes our commitment to working in step with Indian Country, season to season and year to year.
>In December, we held our inaugural research summit, convening social scientists, tribal leaders, and legal experts for virtual discussions of key research questions for Indian Country. Visit the summit page to explore the agenda and view session videos.
