90 day tribal consultation deadline: Did you make it?

February 17, 2010

Last November, the White House hosted a nation-to-nation conference with representatives from over 350 of the federally recognized tribes in this country. During that event, the president signed a memorandum directing all federal agencies to provide a detailed plan outlining how they would improve tribal consultation. This month marked the deadline for that plan to be submitted, but several agencies (including the Department of Homeland Security) have failed to do so. This failure has been met with disappointment from many tribal leaders, who hoped the agency heads would match Obama’s level of commitment to tribes.
