2013 Tribal Consultations

2012 Urban Native Listening and Learning Sessions

The U.S. Department of Education held listening and learning sessions in urban Indian communities in 2011, and plans to conduct more in 2012. Information gathered from these sessions will continue to inform Federal education programs that impact urban communities. These listening and learning sessions are a follow-up to a series of tribal consultations held in 2010.

In accordance with the Department of Education's commitment to engage in regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with Indian tribes and Indian education stakeholders, these sessions are designed to provide you with an opportunity to voice your thoughts and engage in dialogue with senior officials. The sessions will provide an opportunity to voice feedback on the strategies and objectives of Executive Order 13592, Improving American Indian Education and Alaska Native Educational Opportunities and Strengthening Tribal Colleges and Universities, as it relates to urban Native American student issues. Together, tribal and community leaders, education stakeholders and the Department of Education will move forward in creating a more effective and responsive education policy that positively impact our Native youth.
