Background Congress enacted the Not Invisible Act (Act), Public Law 116–166, 134 Stat. 766 (2020), to increase intergovernmental coordination to identify and combat violent crime within Indian lands and against Indians. Section 4 of the Act requires that the Secretary of the Interior (Secretary), in coordination with the United States Attorney General, establish and appoint members to a Joint Commission on Reducing Violent Crime Against Indians (Commission) to develop recommendations on actions the Federal Government can take to identify, coordinate, and combat violent crime against Indians. Section 4(c)(2)(A) of the Act requires the Commission to develop recommendations on actions the Federal Government can take to help combat violent crime within Indian lands and against Indians, including recommendations for: (i) Identifying, reporting, and responding to instances of missing persons, murder, and human trafficking on Indian lands and of Indians; (ii) legislative and administrative changes necessary to use programs, properties, or other resources funded or operated by the Department of the Interior and Department of Justice to combat the crisis of missing or murdered Indians and human trafficking on Indian lands and of Indians; (iii) tracking and reporting data on instances of missing persons, murder, and human trafficking on Indian lands and of Indians; (iv) addressing staff shortages and open positions within relevant law enforcement agencies, including issues related to the hiring and retention of law enforcement officers; (v) coordinating Tribal, State, and Federal resources to increase prosecution of murder and human trafficking offenses on Indian lands and of Indians; and (vi) increasing information sharing with Tribal governments on violent crime investigations and prosecutions in Indian lands that were terminated or declined. II. Public Meetings A. Purpose of the Public Meetings The Department is holding public meetings to receive input from stakeholders on the formation of the Commission and what the Commission should consider when developing recommendations that will have lasting PO 00000 Frm 00103 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 impacts on Indian Country and further address the missing and murdered Indigenous peoples crisis. The Department particularly seeks input from stakeholders who are diverse with expertise on the subject area, and those who are directly affected by violent crime against American Indians and Alaska Natives, including those in Tribal leadership, law enforcement, the judicial system, health care and mental health practitioners, counselors, national/regional/urban Indian organizations, and survivors and family members of individuals affected by violent crime. The Department is hosting separate Tribal consultations on this topic and has invited Tribal leaders by letter. The Department will consider the comments received during both the public meetings and Tribal consultation to inform formation of the Commission, development of the priorities and goals of the Commission and the scope of its duties, and to identify existing information related to the Commission’s objectives. In addition, the information will guide the structure and topics for hearings, the process for gathering testimony and receiving such evidence the Commission considers to be necessary to carry out its duties. B. Questions for Stakeholder Consideration The following questions are presented for stakeholder consideration: (1) What, from the topics listed in Section 4(c)(2)(A) of the Act and repeated above, is a priority that would most benefit your community? Are there other topics related to the Commission’s objectives that you wish the Commission to consider? (2) The Act requires that the Commission include representation from and coordination across several federal agencies. Are there agencies, bureaus, offices, or programs you believe should be represented on the Commission that are not listed in the Act? Are there agencies, bureaus, offices, or programs that may not be represented on the Commission but that you believe the Commission should otherwise coordinate with or obtain input from? If so, please identify these agencies, bureaus, offices, or programs. (3) The Act lists categories of individuals from outside the Federal Government to be represented on the Commission.1 Are there other categories 1 Tribal law enforcement; a Tribal judge with experience in cases related to missing persons, murder, or trafficking; not fewer than 3 national, regional, or urban Indian organizations focused on violence against women and children on Indian lands or against Indians; at least 2 Indian survivors of human trafficking; at least 2 family members of E:\FR\FM\05AUN1.SGM 05AUN1
