Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 99 / Wednesday, May 23, 2007 / Notices pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES government relationship that exists between AIAN tribal governments and the Census Bureau. This relationship is based on the U.S. Constitution, federal treaties, policy, law, court decisions, and the ongoing political relationship among tribes and the federal government. The relationship results in a federal trust responsibility to federally-recognized tribal governments. The foundation for this policy statement is the White House Memorandum of September 23, 2004, ‘‘Government-to-Government Relations with Native American Tribal Governments’’ and the AIAN policy of the DOC of March 30, 1995. This policy is for internal management only and does not grant or vest any right to any party in respect to any federal action, not otherwise granted or vested by existing law or regulations. II. Definitions Federally recognized Indian Tribe: Any AIAN, Band, Nation, Pueblo, or other organized group or community, including any Alaska Native village, as defined or established pursuant to the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (Title 43, United States Code (U.S.C.), Chapter 33, Section 1601 et seq.), acknowledged by the federal government to constitute a tribe with a government-to-government relationship with the United States and eligible for the programs, services, and other relationships established by the United States for indigenous people because of their status as American Indian and Alaska Native tribes, Bands, Nations, Pueblos, or communities. American Indian or Alaska Native Tribal Government: The recognized government of an Indian tribe and any affiliated or component band government of such tribe that has been determined eligible for specific services by Congress or officially recognized by the U.S. Department of the Interior in a Notice (‘‘Indian Entities Recognized and Eligible to Receive Services from the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs’’) published in the Federal Register on November 25, 2005 (70 FR 71194). Trust Responsibility: Includes, but is not limited to: promotion and protection of tribal treaty rights, federallyrecognized reserved rights, and other federally recognized interests of the beneficiary American Indian and Alaska Native governments; determining, documenting, notifying, and interacting with tribal governments with regard to the impact of Census Bureau programs, policies and regulations to protect American Indian and Alaska Native traditional and cultural life ways, treaty, VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:32 May 22, 2007 Jkt 211001 and other federally recognized and reserved rights. III. Policy Principles The following policy statements provide general guidelines to Census Bureau employees for actions dealing with AIAN governments. 1. The Census Bureau recognizes the unique government-to-government relationship between the United States and federally recognized AIAN tribal governments, as affirmed by the September 23, 2004, White House Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies, and the American Indian and Alaska Native Policy of the DOC. 2. The Census Bureau recognizes each tribal government as a functioning governing body that the Census Bureau will work with to count and collect data as accurately as possible, of all residents living in AIAN areas. 3. The Census Bureau recognizes and invites tribal governments’ involvement in the Census Bureau planning process for censuses and surveys toward ensuring the most accurate counts and data for the AIAN populations. 4. The Census Bureau’s procedures for outreach, notice, and consultation will ensure involvement of AIAN tribal governments, to the extent practicable and permitted by law, before making decisions or implementing policies, rules, or programs that affect federally recognized tribal governments. 5. The Census Bureau will continue its partnerships with tribal governments to enhance awareness of all censuses, surveys, and geography programs— particularly those including residents living in AIAN areas. 6. The Census Bureau recognizes that there are distinct cultural practices, religious beliefs, traditions, climate conditions, as well as a tribe’s authority over its land areas that must be considered and abided by when conducting any censuses or survey in AIAN areas. 7. The Census Bureau recognizes the importance of effective and efficient coordination with other federal agencies in the planning process of any censuses or surveys that will include AIAN tribal governments. 8. The Census Bureau acknowledges its responsibility to provide accurate demographic and economic data on AIAN populations and their businesses. The Census Bureau will work with tribal governments and other partners to encourage the participation of every resident. 9. The Census Bureau will consult with AIAN tribal governments before making decisions or implementing PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28953 programs that may affect tribes to ensure that tribal rights and concerns are addressed. Consultation will provide, but is not limited to, mutually agreed upon protocols for timely communication, coordination, cooperation, and collaboration. Therefore, the Director of the Census Bureau hereby directs all directorates and their components (divisions, branches, and offices) to implement this policy by incorporating all of the above principles in their interactions with federally recognized AIAN tribal governments.
