US Department of Labor announces publication of final tribal consultation policy
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Labor today published in the Federal Register its finalized tribal consultation policy, which establishes a formal process through which the department will engage in consultation with federally recognized tribes on actions or policies that will have a significant impact on tribal nations. This policy requires that the department's government-to-government consultation with the federally recognized tribes involve appropriate tribal and department officials.
"The finalization of the Department of Labor's tribal consultation policy constitutes an important step in our ongoing efforts to more meaningfully engage with Indian Country," said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. "Implementation of this policy will ensure that the department honors the government-to-government relationship shared between the United States and the federally recognized tribes." President Obama previously has cited Executive Order 13175, which was issued by President Clinton, tasking executive branch departments and agencies with engaging in regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with tribal officials in the development of federal policies that have tribal implications.

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."- Samuel Adams
