Local and Tribal Intergovernmental Consultation

State planning law requires cities and counties to consult with California Native American tribes during the local planning process for the purpose of protecting Traditional Tribal Cultural Places. OPRís consultation guidelines, background information, and training session information are all available online

For purposes of consultation with tribes, as required by Government Code Sections 65352.3 and 65562.5, the Native American Heritage Commission (NAHC) maintains a list of California Native American Tribes with whom local governments must consult. The NAHC's "California Tribal Consultation List" provides the name, address, and contact name for of each of these tribes; and telephone, fax and email information if available. The tribal contact list is developed and maintained by the NAHC, under authority granted in Government Code Sections 65092, 65352 and 65352.3. Prior to initiating consultation with a Tribe, the city/county must contact the NAHC for a list of Tribes to consult with. For questions about the list, please contact the NAHC at www.nahc.ca.gov.
