The Tribal Affairs focus of the Intergovernmental and External Affairs office serves to strengthen the Department’s relationships and interactions with the Tribes.  Offering unique insights into the way Departmental programs and policies impact the Tribes, this office serves as the central point of contact for interactions with Tribal governments.   In addition to coordinating and directing Tribal government engagement activities, the Tribal Affairs office monitors legislative developments that could potentially impact the Department’s relationship with the Tribes. Providing oversight of the implementation of the Department's Indian Policy, the Tribal Affairs office also facilitates internal Departmental communications on Indian issues and coordinates implementation of major cross-cutting initiatives with the Tribes.
