Department of Defense Plan of Action re EO 13175
Over 40 Tribes, Tribal organizations, Alaska Native Corporations, and Tribal businesses submitted written comments and/or participated in the virtual consultations DoD officials hosted in April. Drawing on the input received, DoD staff crafted a plan that outlines how DoD policies, training, consultation, and outreach will help DoD meet its federal trust responsibilities to Tribes and protect Tribal lands, rights, and resources from impacts related to ongoing and proposed military operations. The 10-page DoD Plan of Action details steps to update policy, refine and improve program guidance, expand cultural communications and consultation training (online and in-person, if conditions permit) for DoD leaders and staff, and reinvigorate outreach initiatives to inform and engage Tribal leaders.
