NOTICE:  DATE CHANGE
2014 Tribal Summit

The 2014 Natural Resources Tribal Summit has been rescheduled, and will now be held on November 5th and 6th.
 
We have rescheduled to avoid a date conflict with both the Health and Human Services Administration meeting and the National Tribal Unity meeting that are scheduled to occur the week of September 15th in Washington D.C.
 
Please Confirm your Attendance
Let us know at your earliest convenience whether or not you’ll be able to attend the November Natural Resources Summit which will be held at the Swinomish Casino and Lodge. In partnership with the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community, we will open with a reception and dinner on November 5th at 5pm, and begin a roundtable meeting at 9am on the 6th.
 
For More Information
We welcome your participation in the planning meetings.  Please contact DNRs Tribal Liaison, Joenne McGerr at 360.902.1012, or Debra Lekanoff, Office of the Chairman, Swinomish Indian Tribal Community at 360.391.5296 with any questions you might have.


 
Collaborative Relationships with Washington Tribes helps ensure good Communication
DNR works toward collaborative relationships and good communication with Tribes in all its programs, at all levels across the agency. The department recognizes the Tribes' separate rights and authorities and maintains government-to-government relations with the 29 recognized Indian Tribes residing in the state of Washington as well as other interested Indian Tribes outside of the state of Washington. 

The Centennial Accord was established in 1989 through the governor and the signatory tribes. In addition, the Commissioner of Public Lands also recognizes the department's relationship with Washington's sovereign tribes with an official Commissioner's Order on Tribal Relations. The Commissioner's Order serves as the department's overall tribal relations policy and commits the department to conduct relations with the tribes as one government to another. Building on the foundation that the Centennial Accord provided, the Governor and tribes met in 1999 to again express their desire to build stronger working relationships by adopting the Millennium Agreement. These various documents provide the context for DNR's tribal relations program.

DNR’s Tribal Relations Manager coordinates these efforts for the agency.
