Tribal Relations Directives

The Forest Service Manual (FSM 1560) and Handbook (FSH 1509.13) revision has been completed. These directives were published in the Federal Register on March 9, 2016. For more information, see these directives on our Authorities web page; or, you may contact the Office of Tribal Relations at OTR@fs.fed.us or 202-205-1514.


Tribal Connections

Tribal Connections is an interactive map that shows the connection between national forests and grasslands, tribal trust lands and tribal lands ceded as part of a treaty. The map is used by the Forest Service as one tool of many to better inform land management decisions.

Vision

The Forest Service is recognized as a leader among Federal land management agencies in partnering appropriately and collaboratively with American Indian and Alaska Native Tribal governments and communities for mutually beneficial outcomes.
