Abstract : On April 29, 1994, President William Clinton issued a Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies, titled 'Government-to-Government Relations with Native American Tribal Governments.' (copy contained in Appendix A). Dr. John Zirschky, the Acting Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works, requested that Major General Stanley Genega, Director of Civil Works, conduct interest group workshops with Native Americans (copy contained in Appendix B). General Genega responded to Dr. Zirschky's request by forming the 'Native American Intergovernmental Relations Task Force' (see Appendix C). Based on task force recommendations General Genega directed field offices to conduct a series of workshops and other data collection activities to assess the scope, extent, and quality of Corps-tribal interactions. The workshop results and the data obtained formed the basis of the Native American Intergovernmental Relations Task Force recommendations on opportunities to improve the Civil Works Directorate 5 government-to-government interactions with Federally Recognized Tribes.
