Tribal Affairs

Strengthening Partnerships with California Native American tribes

CNRA aims to cultivate and ensure the meaningful participation and inclusion of tribal governments and communities within the work of the Agency, supporting the effective integration of these governments’ and communities’ interests in environmental policymaking. These efforts seek to advance programs, policies, regulations, and new laws to strengthen these working relationships, and coordinate tribal affairs across the Agency and with external governments and organizations.

As Secretary Crowfoot has said, engaging Tribal governments is essential in California. Adopting true co-management strategies will enable California residents to experience the vast biodiversity held in our states for generations to come. Watch these critical conversations unfold with the Secretary and some of our Tribal partners in a segment of our Secretary Speaker Series, titled: “Building Trust Between State and Tribal Governments.”
