The Office on Violence Against Women extends a special thank you to all of the Tribal Leaders who wish to present testimony at the 19th Annual Government-to-Government Violence Against Women Tribal Consultation, which will be held at the Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder in Santa Fe, New Mexico between November 19-21, 2024.

If you are a non-elected/appointed Tribal Leader wanting to submit testimony, you must submit either an authorizing resolution from your Tribal Council or a letter from the Tribal Chairman authorizing you to offer testimony on behalf of your tribe. Tribal Leaders must be from a Federally Recognized Tribe. There will be three opportunities for Tribal Leaders to provide testimony.

  • Pre-recorded Testimony (with assistance provided by Chickasaw Speaker Management)
  • Oral Testimony (In person)
  • Written Testimony

Testimony submission details are provided to all Tribal Leaders and delegates who select that they would like to provide testimony within the registration process.

Note: Written testimony is due by Monday, December 23, 2024. If you have any questions or need assistance, please send an email to: tribalconsultationsupport@chickasaw.com.


Recording Notice: Portions of this consultation will be recorded for the purpose of technical quality assurances. In the event of any technical failure, the recordings will serve as a backup source for the written summary to be presented to the U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women.
