Tribal Consultation Policy

  • Guidelines for Information Sharing Pilot with California Indian Tribes (PDF)
    Under the Department’s Information Sharing Pilot, participating California Indian Tribes receive public information about Department activities and announcements of current and future plans. This program has been extended through the end of March 2017. Tribes that had been participating in the Pilot as of March 2017 should (if they have not already done so) contact the Department Tribal Liaison (Stephen.Lau@dbo.ca.gov) and provide their written agreement to continued participation. Any California Indian Tribe that has not previously participated, but that is interested in doing so, should review the Guidelines for Information Sharing Pilot and contact the Department Tribal Liaison at Stephen.Lau@dbo.ca.gov.
