Tribal Consultation

The Indian Health Service (IHS) is strongly committed to regular, ongoing Tribal Consultation that leads to information exchange, respectful dialogue, mutual understanding, and informed decision-making. Tribal Consultation is an essential element for a sound and productive relationship with Tribes. Tribal Consultation occurs when there is a critical event that may impact Tribes, new or revised policies or programs are proposed, or the IHS budget request and annual performance plan are being developed.
