The Bureau of Land Management consulted with Native governments regarding the Oil Shale and Tar Sands Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS).
The U.S. Department of Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), works on a government-to-government basis with Native American 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 BLM coordinated and consulted with Tribal governments, Native communities, and Tribal individuals whose interests might be directly and substantially affected by activities on Western federal lands. The BLM strives to provide the Tribes sufficient opportunities for productive participation in planning and resource management decision making.
