Secretary Salazar offers thanks for consultation talks
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar offered the following message to Indian Country for participating in the tribal consultation policy meetings in December 2009 and January 2010:
On behalf of President Obama and the Department of the Interior I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who took time to participate in our tribal consultation meetings in December and January. We held 14 sessions in 7 cities throughout the country. More than 290 tribal representatives attended and we received over 700 oral and written comments. The voice of Indian Country has been critical in helping us develop our plan of action for the Department’s new Tribal Consultation Policy. Again, we thank you for your time, thoughts, and contributions and we look forward to working with you as we implement our action plan over the coming months.
