Veterans Training Summit — Buffalo Thunder Resort

Pojoaque Pueblo, NM — To tap into programs and services for Veterans and their families, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Pueblo of Pojoaque hosted a Veterans Training Summit for 103 Veterans and family members of Veterans on July 6 and 7, 2016. The goal was to learn what services exist from federal, state, tribal, and non-profit agencies and how to access them. Forty presenters explained services such as VA’s National Transportation Program, Housing Options for Veterans, and VA Supportive Services for Veterans Families. Governor Frederick Vigil (Pueblo of Tesuque) and Governor Joseph M. Talachy (Pueblo of Pojoaque) welcomed and recognized the Veterans who attended. The VA Deputy Assistant Secretary Michelle Dominguez and Cabinet Secretary Jack Fox encouraged Veterans to access their earned benefits. Twenty-one Planning Group members met monthly from Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo, Pueblo of Tesuque, Pueblo of Pojoaque, Kewa Pueblo, San Ildefonso Pueblo, Jemez Pueblo, as well as the New Mexico Department of Veterans Services, the New Mexico VA Health Care System, and the VBA Albuquerque Regional Office. The Veterans Training Summit at the Buffalo Thunder Resort in northern New Mexico represents the 25th Veterans Training Summit conducted by the VA Office of Tribal Government Relations. An Intergovernmental Visit and Cultural Tour for a small group of VA representatives meeting with Santa Clara Pueblo and Pueblo of Tesuque government representatives topped off this summit focusing on collaboration, education, and networking to build relationships to better serve Veterans and their families.
