The consultation, to be held at the Navajo Nation’s Department of Dine Education in Window Rock, Ariz., is an outgrowth of President Obama’s Nov. 5, 2009 Presidential Memorandum and Executive Order 13175, which directs agencies to develop a plan of actions for providing regular and meaningful consultation and strengthening of government-to-government relationships with Indian tribes.
