Tribal Consultation Toolkit

Native Teacher and Student

The Tribal Consultation Toolkit includes tools and resources focused on tribal consultation and sovereignty developed by the National Comprehensive Center’s Native Education Collaborative. The U.S. Department of Education's American Rescue Plan Act Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ARP ESSER) calls for intentional inclusion and collaboration among various stakeholders supporting students, specifically naming Tribes as necessary partners in deciding how to use the funds to address students’ needs. This toolkit contains resources for states, tribes, districts and schools to build those critical connections and engage in meaningful consultations as described in the ARP ESSER and required by ESEA.
