Consultation on the Proposed Statement of Principles from DOJ
Date: Thursday, March 13, 2014; Time: 1:00-5:00 p.m. EST; Location: Westover room, Westin Washington City Center, Washington, DC (same location as NCAI's Executive Council Winter Session)
As announced by Attorney General Eric Holder at the White House Tribal Nations Conference this fall, the Department of Justice will adopt a Statement of Principles to guide and inform all of the Department’s interactions with federally recognized Indian tribes. Our Statement of Principles will memorialize the Department of Justice’s determination to serve as a partner in fighting crime and enforcing the law in Indian country. Department of Justice officials value the opportunity to consult with tribal leaders on these principles in order to gain the benefit of leaders’ experience, wisdom, and objectives.
