Case Study: Wisconsin - Tribal Consultation Process

'Wisconsin's State agencies have a unique and effective system for communicating, collaborating, and consulting with the 11 Federally-recognized Tribes in the State. One of these agencies, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), is noted for consulting with Tribes through a variety of means, including regular consultation meetings, Tribal liaisons, the Tribal Historic Preservation Project, and the WisDOT Inter-Tribal Task Force. These efforts have helped to strengthen the agency's relationships with Indian Tribal Governments.'

In 2006 a pilot project was initiated through a memorandum of agreement between the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) and Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians.

This project was designed to strengthen tribal participation in WisDOT programming and projects with a focus on historic preservation and environmental issues. Five years later, this project is strong and continues to thrive.
