In order to create a new narrative for evaluation in Tribal communities, key stakeholders, including program directors and staff, Tribal evaluators, and evaluation partners, need to take action. Dolores Subia Bigfoot, Francine Eddy Jones, and Nancy Rumbaugh Whitesell describe the roles of these stakeholders and reflect on the promise of a new publication, A Roadmap for Collaborative and Effective Evaluation in Tribal Communities, for promoting more collaborative and effective evaluation with Tribal communities.
