Glen Canyon Dam Long-Term Experimental and Management Plan EIS

Government-to-Government Consultation

Reclamation and NPS have consulted with American Indian Tribal governments regarding the LTEMP EIS.

The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) and the National Park Service (NPS) work 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 outcome of this EIS may affect or apply to Tribal resources. Therefore, Reclamation and NPS consulted with affected Tribes throughout the development of the EIS to jointly evaluate and address the potential effects, if any, of the proposed action. These consultations were conducted in accordance with Executive Order 13175; the President's memorandum of April 29, 1994, "Government-to-Government Relations with Native American Tribal Governments" (59 FR 22961); agency-specific guidance on tribal interactions; and applicable natural and cultural resource laws and regulations (for example, National Environmental Policy Act, Endangered Species Act, National Historic Preservation Act, and Migratory Bird Treaty Act); Reclamation and NPS coordinated and consulted with federally recognized Tribes whose interests might be affected by activities being considered in the LTEMP EIS. Regular meetings were held with Tribes who indicated an interest in consultation in the LTEMP EIS development process.
