Government-to-Government Consultation

The Agencies are consulting with American Indian Tribal governments regarding the Uranium Leasing Program Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS).

The Office of Legacy Management (LM), Department of Energy (DOE), works on a government-to-government basis with American Indian Tribes. As a part of the government's Treaty and Trust responsibilities, the government-to-government relationship was formally recognized by the federal government on November 6, 2000, with Executive Order 13175.

The Agencies are coordinating and consulting with Tribal governments, American Indian communities, and Tribal individuals whose interests might be directly and substantially affected by activities on Western federal lands. The Agencies will strive to provide the Tribes sufficient opportunities for productive participation in planning and resource management decision making.
