Program Priorities

  • Program in Focus: Wildlife Services Aids Chippewa Wolf Research

    For the Red Lake Band of Chippewa, the wolf is a special animal deeply entrenched in Tribal lore, legend, and life.  APHIS’ Wildlife Services program is helping Tribal biologists research the population of gray wolves sharing their lands. 

  • News and Announcements: APHIS Works With Ysleta del Sur Pueblo Tribe To Detect Cactus Moths

    In March 2014, the Ysleta del Sur Pueblo Tribe completed its first month of monitoring cactus moth traps—thanks to an early detection project funded by APHIS.

  • Tribal Consultation

    In keeping with Executive Order 13175: Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, APHIS provides opportunities for Tribes to participate in policy development to the greatest extent practicable and permitted by law. 

  • APHIS Native American Working Group

    The APHIS Native American Working Group (ANAWG) provides advice to APHIS animal and plant health experts around the country about ways to better serve Tribes, intertribal committees, and related organizations.  ANAWG also helps coordinate APHIS’ partnerships with Tribal governments.
