Tribal Consultation Policies

The Office on Tribal Relations shall assist state agencies in implementing tribal consultation and outreach activities.  In doing so, each state agency shall:

  1. Develop and implement tribal consultation policies to guide the agency’s work and interaction with the tribal nations of this state.
  2. To the extent practicable and permitted by law, seek input from appropriate elected or appointed tribal officials before undertaking any action or policy that will, or is reasonably believed to, have the potential to affect a tribal community or its members.
  3. To the fullest extent possible and to the best of the agency’s ability, integrate the input generated from tribal consultation into the agency’s decision-making process to achieve mutually acceptable solutions.
  4. Designate a staff member to assume responsibility for the agency’s implementation of the tribal consultation policies and to act as the principal point of contact for tribal affairs.
  5. On or before, October 1 of each year, review the agency’s tribal consultation policies and submit an election progress report with performance measures to the Office.  The Office shall make reports available to tribal leaders and legislators.
