SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 5, 2009, President Obama signed 
the ``Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies on 
Tribal Consultation.'' The President stated that his Administration is 
committed to regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with 
tribal officials in policy decisions that have tribal implications, 
including, as an initial step, through complete and consistent 
implementation of Executive Order 13175.
    The United States has a unique legal and political relationship 
with Indian tribal governments, established through and confirmed by 
the Constitution of the United States, treaties, statutes, executive 
orders, and judicial decisions. In recognition of that special 
relationship, pursuant to Executive Order 13175 of November 6, 2000, 
executive departments and agencies are charged with engaging in regular 
and meaningful consultation and collaboration with tribal officials in 
the development of federal policies that have tribal implications, and 
are responsible for strengthening the government-to-government 
relationship between the United States and Indian tribes.
    The Department has taken its responsibility to comply with 
Executive Order 13175 very seriously over the past decade; including 
the initial implementation of a Department-wide policy on tribal 
consultation and coordination in 1997, and through multiple evaluations 
and revisions of that policy, most recently in 2010. ACF has developed 
its own agency-specific consultation policy that complements the 
Department-wide efforts.
    The ACF Tribal Consultation Session will begin the morning of June 
15, 2016, at the Residence Inn Marriot, Capitol Hill, 333 E Street SW., 
Washington, DC.
    ACF is soliciting input and dialogue on the following priority 
areas that will institutionalize ACF's impact on Native American 
Communities:

 Native Youth and Children Agenda
 Complex Trauma
 Principles for Working with Tribal Governments

    The Native Youth and Children Agenda is a document reflecting a 
structure for innovative policymaking to guide stronger and more 
effective programming that can provide Native American parents, Native 
American caregivers, Native American leadership, and Native American 
children and youth with the tools they need to thrive. ACF's Native 
American Youth and Children Policy Agenda will stand as the policy 
standard for fostering connections of Native American children and 
youth to the relationships they have with their cultures, languages, 
extended families, and Native communities that foster resiliency and 
positive outcomes.
    ACF's Commissioner of the Administration for Native Americans, in 
her role as the Chair of the Intra-Departmental Council on Native 
American Affairs, has been leading efforts with the Department's Office 
of Intergovernmental and External Affairs to coordinate a Department-
wide workgroup of staff from across the Department's Operating and 
Staff Divisions to develop a strengths-based framework for the 
Department's work to address trauma, including historical trauma, in 
Native American communities. This work is in response to a 
Congressional request for an integrated and comprehensive Department-
wide policy addressing complex trauma affecting Native American 
children and communities.
    ACF's Administration for Native Americans and Administration for 
Children, Youth, and Families have worked together to draft 
``Principles for Working with Federally Recognized Indian Tribes'' 
designed to extend and complement ACF's Tribal Consultation Policy and 
to articulate ACF's commitment to promote and sustain strong 
government-to-government relationships, foster Indian self-
determination, and protect tribal sovereignty.
    Testimonies are to be submitted no later than June 8, 2016, to: 
Lillian Sparks Robinson, Commissioner, Administration for Native 
Americans, 330 C Street SW., Mail Stop 4126, Washington, DC 20201, 
anacommissioner@acf.hhs.gov.
