The BLM will offer consultation to potentially affected Federally recognized tribes on a government-togovernment basis, and with affected Alaska Native corporations, in accordance with Executive Order 13175 and other policies. Native concerns, including impacts on Indian trust assets and potential impacts to cultural resources, will be given appropriate consideration. Federal, State, and local agencies, along with tribes and other stakeholders that may be interested in or affected by the proposed RMP Amendment/EA, are invited to participate in the scoping process and, if eligible, may request or be asked by the BLM to participate in the development of the RMP Amendment/ EA as cooperating agencies.
