California is proud to be the home for more Native American residents than any other state. The State recognizes and reaffirms the inherent right of these Tribes to exercise sovereign authority over their members and territory and is committed to strengthening and sustaining relationships between Tribes and the State.
Pursuant to Governor Brown’s Executive Order B-10-11,
“Agencies and departments shall permit elected officials and other representatives of tribal governments to provide meaningful input into the development of legislation, regulations, rules, and policies on matters that may affect tribal communities.”
Brian P. Kelly, Secretary of the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA) Business Transportation, is committed to establishing direct communication and positive relationships with California Indian Tribes on issues that affect the state and tribal communities.
To achieve this goal and to help guide Departments under CalSTA, an agency policy on consultation has been adopted. This policy will guide CalSTA and its Departments in their daily operations to work with California Indian Tribes.
Secretary Kelly has designated the following individuals as Native American Liaisons for CalSTA and its departments.
California State Transportation Agency (CALSTA)
California Department of Transportation (Caltrans)
California Highway Patrol (CHP)
Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)
California High Speed Rail Authority (HSRA)
