Download as PDF emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 221 / Friday, November 15, 2013 / Notices purview of the Handbook to alter the definition in the Executive Order. Comment 17: The Handbook should include a requirement that all Tribes are contacted by at least two different means prior to assuming the Tribe has no interest in a proposed action. Response: NOAA does not adopt this recommendation. A Tribe may work with a Region or Line Office to establish a consultation protocol to address its preferred means of contact. Comment 18: NOAA should have one integrated consultation process, not one for Tribes and one for Alaska Native Corporations. Response: The unique legal and political relationship between the United States and Indian Tribal governments identified in E.O. 13175 and President Obama’s November 5, 2009, Memorandum and established in treaties, statutes, executive orders, and judicial decisions does not apply to Alaska Native Corporations, which lack any kind of sovereign political status and are not governmental entities. Rather, they are corporate form entities created by the Federal statute. The consultations with Alaska Native Corporations should be and, as described in the Handbook, are different from those for Federally recognized Indian Tribes. In addition, the Handbook allows the Alaska Regional Office and/or Line Offices to develop consultation protocols with Alaska Native Corporations when the need for any specific procedures to identify and address where the interests of an Alaska Native Corporation and Federally recognized Indian tribe may conflict or coincide. The essence of the trust relationship between NOAA and Federally recognized Indian tribes is NOAA’s obligation to ensure the interests of tribes in government-togovernment consultation are fully considered, whether by providing separate consultations or joint consultations with an Alaska Native Corporation. Comment 19: NOAA should provide specific guidance on how disagreements between Alaska Native Corporations and Federally recognized Tribal governments will be resolved during a dual consultation process. Response: NOAA does not adopt this recommendation. As noted in response to comment 18 above, this Handbook allows the Alaska Regional Office and/ or Line Offices to develop consultation protocols with Alaska Native Corporations or Indian Tribal governments, including joint protocols, to address the Tribal implications of proposed NOAA policies and actions. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:58 Nov 14, 2013 Jkt 232001 E.O. 13175 requires NOAA to strengthen the government-to-government relationship between the United States and Indian Tribes and engage in regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with Tribal officials in the development of Federal policies that have Tribal implications. NOAA does not accept the recommendation that added weight should be given to an entity’s views based on relative impact of a policy with Tribal implications. NOAA will consult with Alaska Native Corporations on a basis similar to that for Federally recognized tribes and reflecting the essential distinction between the sovereign governments and Alaska Native Corporations. Comment 20: NOAA should include additional background information regarding the unique history of Alaska Native Corporations and their obligations to Alaska Natives. Response: Section VII part E includes a history of Alaska Native Corporations and the Federal obligations to Alaska Natives. Therefore, additional information was not added to the Handbook. Comment 21: Establish a Web page containing links to all DOC agency actions. Response: NOAA will continue to explore the practicality of developing such a Web page and will work with the DOC Senior Advisor on communications and consultations processes. Comment 22: The Handbook should clarify that Tribes need not use the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to obtain NOAA records relevant to a government-to-government consultation. In addition, NOAA should revise the Handbook to indicate that Tribal knowledge can be protected from FOIA requests. Response: NOAA has incorporated this suggested change in section VI part F subsection 4. Culturally Sensitive Information is addressed in the Handbook section VIII.C. It should be noted, however, that there are situations where NOAA is legally obligated to provide documents to the public in response to a FOIA request. Comment 23: NOAA should add a reference to the DOC Policy to the Handbook. Response: The DOC Policy is discussed in the introduction section of the Handbook. Comment 24: NOAA should add a statement to the Handbook making clear that NOAA cannot be represented by a private entity nor may government-togovernment consultations be managed or facilitated by a private entity. PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 68821 Response: NOAA does not adopt this recommendation. The Handbook provides NOAA with the necessary flexibility to ensure its consultations are as effective as possible. To provide meaningful consultation and coordination, NOAA may need to engage a consultant or expert facilitator to assist with a consultation or to represent NOAA during a governmentto-government consultation. However, at all times, an appropriate-level NOAA representative will be present to represent the agency. Comment 25: On the top of page 9 the terms ‘‘Band, Nation, Pueblo, Village, and Community’’ should be capitalized. Response: NOAA has incorporated this suggested change.
