Working together with Native American Liaisons and officials from among the Federally recognized Tribes nationwide, the Office of the Native American Liaison identifies areas where both Federal and Tribal conservation efforts can most effectively conserve fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats.
What We Do
- Serve as the liaison (i.e., lead point-of-contact or intermediary) between the Service and federally recognized Indian Tribes.
- Implement the Service's 2016 revised Native American Policy.
- Provide grant funding through the Tribal Wildlife Grants program to federally-recognized Tribes.
- At the request of a Tribe, develop and prepare agreements relating to mutual activities involving natural resources.
