The Florida Governor’s Council on Indian Affairs, Inc., the “Council” is a private, non-profit corporation which was incorporated under the laws of Florida at the direction of Executive Order #74-23.
The Council provides a variety of services to American Indians, Native Alaskans and Native Hawaiians living in both Florida and Georgia. One of our primary goals is to provide technical assistance for the educational, economic, social and cultural advancement of the Native American citizens within the states of Florida and Georgia. The Florida Indian Youth Program was created as one response to this goal. Each July, Native American youths from both Florida and Georgia join us in Tallahassee for an intensive, 2-week educational experience called The Florida Indian Youth Program. There are four main components to the Florida Indian Youth Program curriculum, including: academic skills, job skills, life skills, and social and cultural activities.
The Council also provides Employment and Training Program for the economically disadvantaged, underemployed, or unemployed through a grant from the Department of Labor, Workforce Investment Act. Assistance is designed to meet the needs of each individual, meeting them where they are now and helping them to get to economic self-sufficiency.
The Honorable Chairman William Buffalo Tiger
On January 6, 2015, sadly the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida lost a legend, a leader, a revered Tribal Elder and a loved one, the Honorable Chairman William Buffalo Tiger; the first Chairman of the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida. Chairman Tiger leaves a legacy of leadership, political, social, and civic activism that will be greatly missed. Click here for more information about the Honorable Chairman William Buffalo Tiger
