Native Americans



The challenges facing tribal governments and interests are never ending. Healthcare issues go to the heart of the community. Plans for economic development and gaming exclusivity affect revenues now and for the next generation. The sometimes double edged sword of sovereignty creates complex relationships between tribal, state and national organizations. In many cases leaders are trusted to navigate these complex areas with limited resources and connections. At the same time they often need protection from those who are trying to infringe upon their funding and interests.


The Art Hamilton Group assists Native American groups in communicating and working with government agencies to achieve the dignity and respect their sovereign status dictates.  The Art Hamilton Group can assist your tribal government and community by building relationships with local, state and national governing bodies in order to support your issues, from sovereignty and federal funding of health services to state taxation and the development of local business ventures. The Art Hamilton Group is positioned to be your ambassador across the spectrum of local and national governmental concerns from local chambers of commerce to congressional delegations.
