Overview of Intergovernmental Affairs Office: Tribal Affairs

New one-pager about the Tribal Affairs program

The Tribal Affairs team works closely with American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) tribal nations on a government-to-government basis to address issues concerning tribal self-government. The government-to-government relationship is based on the United States Constitution, federal treaties, policy, law, court decisions, and executive orders, and the ongoing political relationship among tribal nations and the federal government. The IAO serves as the principal liaison office for tribal affairs and is the principal advisor to the director and executive staff on tribal issues and concerns. The team’s work focuses on collaborating with other agencies, building and maintaining relations with tribal leaders, tribal associations, and tribal members in order to educate, inform, consult, and share program information from across the U.S. Census Bureau.
