Government-to-Government Tribal Relations glossary
ODOT conducts government-to-government consultation as mandated by ORS 182.162. With regards to FHWA-related projects, FHWA remains responsible for consultation with Tribes and retains its government-to-government relationship; however, FHWA does rely on ODOT’s established tribal coordination process.
Archaeologists consult with all nine of the federally-recognized Tribes in the state of Oregon as well as with federally-recognized out-of-state Tribes that have an interest within Oregon.
ODOT’s government-to-government policy promotes and enhances these relationships through programs that include Tribal involvement in the development and implementation of transportation projects and other activities that may affect Tribal lands, resources and interests.
