Program Priorities

  • 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.
