Tribal Consultation Webinar Series

Where: Online
Apr 12, 2022 - Jan 10, 2023

Overview

All federal agencies are required to engage in regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with Tribal Officials. Consultation should emphasize trust, respect, and shared responsibility leading to a mutual understanding and comprehension among consulting parties. Government-to-government relationships should include regular and timely communication so that tribes may provide input on issues that may have a substantial direct effect on them.

The Tribal Consultation Webinar series is being offered for NPS employees looking for an introduction into the Tribal consultation process, or those who want to refresh their skills or ask experts for advice on best consultation practices for managing park resources. The webinars are led by Dorothy FireCloud, Native American Affairs Liaison, Assistant to the Director, and will feature guest speakers from the Council for Indigenous Relevancy, Communication, Leadership and Excellence (CIRCLE) and NPS partners specializing in Tribal consultation.

This series is open to employees from all disciplines who are interested in learning more about Tribal consultation. There are no prerequisites or outside assignments, but we encourage attendees to join the Consultation with Tribal and Indigenous People discussion forum to continue the conversation and for access to resources mentioned in the webinars.

This series takes place on the second Tuesday of the month, 3:00–4:30 Eastern/Noon–1:30 Pacific.
These webinars are not recorded.
