We take our commitment to strengthening Tribal sovereignty and self-governance seriously, and we know that robust consultations are the cornerstones of Federal Indian policy.
We host consultations with Tribal Nations to:
- Honor our nation-to-nation relationship;
- Hear directly from Tribal leaders as we address the health, economic, racial justice, and climate crises — all of which disproportionately impact American Indians and Alaska Natives; and
- Commit ourselves to a process that addresses Tribal needs and ensures we respect and take input to heart.
