Department of Homeland Security Plan to Develop a Tribal Consultation and Coordination Policy: Implementing Executive Order 13175   [open pdf - 125KB]

"This document responds to the Presidential Memorandum directing each department and agency to develop a detailed plan of action for compliance with Executive Order (E.O.) 13175. [...] We have developed this plan in order to establish regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with tribal officials in the development of policies that have tribal implications, to strengthen the United States government-to-government relationships with Indian tribes, and to reduce the imposition of unfunded mandates upon Indian tribes. [...] As required by both E.O. 13175 and the November 5th Presidential Memorandum, this plan was drafted in consultation with tribal governments. It is a living document that DHS [Department of Homeland Security] will continue to refine and perfect through collaboration with our tribal partners over the coming months. [...] There are several key pieces to the Department's Plan of Action that will be synchronized and enacted across the Department to foster a meaningful government-to-government relationship with our tribal partners. These key pieces fall into two broad categories: 1) Consultation Policies and Mechanisms, and 2) Collaboration, Outreach, and Activities."
