Tribal Consultation Toolkit

Tribal consultation is a process that local governments conduct to consult and coordinate with California Native American tribes within the jurisdiction of a proposed project. The goal of tribal consultation is to ensure that any new project – such as constructing affordable housing - properly identifies, respects, and cares for tribal cultural resources that may be present. This toolkit provides local governments and project proponents guidance and supporting information for use during tribal consultation under Senate Bill 35 (2018) and Assembly Bill 168 (2020).
