The Oklahoma Tribal Conservation Advisory Council and the Oklahoma leadership for the agencies of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, are hosting a “Nation to Nation” Tribal Virtual Consultation Meeting at 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 17.

This is truly a special event, with all of Oklahoma's sovereign tribes having been invited to attend. The hosting tribe for this year’s event is the Chickasaw Nation, and Chickasaw Governor Bill Anoatubby will provide the welcome message.

“The Nation to Nation consultation event is a great way to share successes and discuss things USDA can improve on in Indian Country,” said Gary O’Neill, Oklahoma Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) State Conservationist. “This consultation leads to stronger and more effective partnerships between Tribes in Oklahoma and USDA.”

"This event provides us with an opportunity to engage tribal leaders and administrators from across Oklahoma and helps us identify ways that USDA can better serve tribal governments and tribal members, particularly those that are engaged in farming and/or ranching,” said USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service Tribal Liaison Dr. Carol Crouch. "We realize that protecting natural resources and preserving the land for future generations is a major priority among American Indian tribes. We are looking forward to the opportunity to discuss ways that tribal governments and tribal members can better utilize USDA resources."

Troy Marshall, Oklahoma State Statistician, U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Service, Field Operations, Southern Plains Region, added that, “The Nation to Nation is an event where attendees get to listen to success stories Oklahoma Tribes have seen when partnering with USDA agencies. After hearing those successes there is time set aside on the agenda to engage with tribal leadership on how to build and strengthen those partnerships, between Oklahoma Tribes and USDA Agencies, for the coming years.”

For more information on the Nation to Nation Tribal Consultation, contact Crouch at 405-742-1203 or carol.crouch@usda.gov .
