Tribal-State Relations Training
Tribal consultation and TSRT are now required under MN law: Laws of Minnesota, 1st Spec. Sess. chapter 14, article 11, section 5
"The state has instituted Tribal-state government relations training, which is the foundation and basis of all other Tribal government relations training sources. All agencies must direct certain staff to complete available training to foster a collaborative relationship between the state of Minnesota and Minnesota Tribal governments, and to facilitate timely and meaningful consultation. In addition to all commissioners, deputy commissioners, and assistant commissioners, at a minimum all agency employees whose work is likely to include matters that have Tribal implications must attend Tribal-state relations training. Tribal liaisons must actively support and participate in the Tribal-state relations training. (Laws of Minnesota, 1st Spec. Sess. chapter 14, article 11, sec. 5 subd.3J).
