Nawa. Kuha?ahat. (Greeting in my tribal languages.) Thank you for visiting the National Johnson O'Malley Association, Region 1 resource page, covering the states of Arizona and Colorado. This website is currently under construction. Additional resources will be added as they become available. Please visit often for the latest resource update.
Arizona JOM Forum
In a collaborative effort between the National Johnson O’Malley Association (NJOMA) Region 1 Representative and the Arizona Department of Education, a state-wide forum for Johnson O’Malley (JOM) support was started with a virtual kick-off held in January 2022. We are continuing the Arizona wide JOM forum that will be held quarterly. The overall purpose of this forum is to provide an opportunity for all JOM contractors in Arizona to unite and discuss any challenges with JOM, gain guidance, and share best practices. Each quarterly forum is recorded to document the needs of JOM contractors, and the guidance provided by participants, NJOMA, and the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE). Ultimately, the forum provides an opportunity to collaborate in creating a united and consistent support structure for Arizona Indigenous students. Although the forum is geared towards the JOM contractors, all stakeholders in Indian Education are welcome to attend.

Arizona Wakelet Toolkits
A Wakelet was created to share tips and best practices for JOM programs. These toolkit resources provide a supply of assets that can be drawn on by JOM entities in order to function more effectively. Please Note: the resources in the toolkits are a collection of resources for JOM participants to select and use at their discretion. They are not directives from NJOMA. Each JOM program is unique and the purpose of the toolkits is to provide options. The toolkits are created through collaborative efforts with JOM stakeholders. If there are resources you use or tips that have helped you with your JOM program, please send to Region1.NJOMA@gmail.com.

Tribal Consultation Guide
Intergovernmental agreements and state-tribal compacts are one tool in promoting positive state-tribal relationships and fostering collaborative policy development. There are many policy issues and aspects of Indian law that require a high degree of state-tribal cooperation.
