Joint Tribal Consultation Report issued by DOJ, DOI and Army

From Turtle Talk, Indigenous Law and Policy Center blog, Michigan State University College of Law:

Report: Improving Tribal Consultation and Tribal Involvement in Federal Infrastructure Decisions – January 2017

Read/Download Here.

A short excerpt from the report:
“Tribes stated that many Federal leaders and staff dealing with infrastructure matters lack an understanding of the trust and treaty responsibilities, how to work with Tribes effectively, Tribal histories and cultures, and Federal agency policies—all of which, in turn, affect their daily execution of agency missions. Accordingly, Tribes emphasized the need to educate Federal agency leaders and staff dealing with infrastructure matters on basic principles of the Federal Government’s responsibilities to Tribes and the history of the United States’ relationship with Tribes.”
