Tribal Treaty Rights (TTR) MOU

The White House Council on Native American Affairs (WHCNAA) invites Tribal Leaders to consult on the implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding Regarding Interagency Coordination and Collaboration For The Protection of Tribal Treaty and Reserved Rights (TTR MOU). The TTR MOU builds on the 2016 Treaty Rights MOU issued by the Obama Administration in the fall of 2016. The TTR MOU strengthens the 2016 MOU in a number of significant ways, including further committing the signatory federal departments and agencies to early consideration of Tribal treaty rights, reserved rights and similar Tribal rights in federal decision making and regulatory processes. 

The WHCNAA welcomes all Tribal comments and recommendations on implementation of the TRR MOU. Enclosed in the Dear Tribal Leader Letter is a draft Best Practices Field Guide and Decision Flow Chart prepared by the TTR MOU Work Group and Legal Subgroup designed to assist federal field staff in integrating the consideration of treaty and reserved rights into agency decision making processes. 

Please submit written comments to consultation@bia.gov by 11:59 ET on Monday, October 10, 2022.
