On November 5, 2009, President Obama signed a Memorandum on Tribal Consultation that pronounces Tribal consultations a critical ingredient of a sound and productive Federal-Tribal relationship. The Presidential Memorandum directs all Federal agencies to develop a detailed plan of the actions to fully implement Consultation and Coordination with American Indian/Alaska Native Tribal Governments and to establish regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with Tribal officials in the development of Federal policies that have Tribal implications.
