The Office of Indian Affairs was established in 1951 by the Montana legislature to facilitate effective tribal-state communications with special attention to the discussion and resolution of issues that Indian peoples face regarding their unique political status and as full citizens of the state of Montana. The Office of Indian Affairs serves as a liaison between the state and the Tribes and promotes economic development, environmental protection, education, support for social services, and enduring good will.

If we can be assistance to you in navigating state government, contacting the Governor or other state officials, or answer questions related to working with Tribal Nations and Indian people, please contact us with questions or comments.
