The Tribal Relations Program promotes culturally grounded, long-term, positive relationships and decision-making processes through government-to-government engagement with Tribal governments and the urban American Indian / Alaska Native community. Through the Tribal Relations program, the City is set-up to have focused and long-term strategies to work through well-established relationships with tribal nations and improve programs and services to Native people living in Portland. The program affirms and strengthens the City’s commitment to American Indian / Alaska Native people and coordinates policymaking to ensure that there is access to opportunities for a high quality of life and continuation of cultural lifeways now and for future generations.
The Tribal Relations Program advises City bureaus and Council offices on outreach to, and interactions with, Tribal governments and the urban Indian community. Likewise, the program fields requests and inquires from Tribes and community members about engagement with the City.
