Working With Oregon's Tribes
The 2001 Oregon Legislature enacted Senate Bill 770, formalizing the government-to-government relationship that exists between Oregon's Indian Tribes and the State of Oregon.
The bill requires state agencies develop and implement policies on tribal relations. Agency managers and others who communicate with the Tribes are to be trained in tribal matters, participate in annual meetings and prepare annual reports.

The bill institutionalized a May 22, 1996 Executive Order. The executive order established a process to "assist in resolving potential conflicts, maximize key inter-governmental relations, and enhance an exchange of ideas and resources for the greater good of all of Oregon's citizens." 
Provisions of the statute also include annual meetings, require key contact designation, and encourage inter-governmental agreements.
ODOE has prepared reports (see below) for each annual meeting. These reports explain the department´s government-to-government activities and issues, and ODOE's SB 770 policy.
If you have questions about the tribal contents of this page, please contact Diana Enright at 503-378-8278.
