Tribal Relations

The Wayne National Forest consults with tribes on a government-to-government basis about proposed Forest projects. Through this consultation, the Forest builds productive working relationships with tribal leaders, government officials, and resource managers. The Forest consults with federally recognized Tribes that are culturally and historically affiliated with, and have ongoing interest in management of Wayne-administered lands. On the Wayne National Forest, the Shawnee, Delaware, Wyandotte, Delaware, and the Miami tribe are consulted on Forest projects.
