The Alaska Regional office is seeking a Tribal Liaison and Outreach Coordinator to promote and communicate outreach actives to build continuous stakeholder engagement across the Region. The person selected will lead efforts to significantly enhance the agency’s engagement with rightsholders and stakeholders in the region, and to implement the USGS Alaska Native engagement plan. This person will also serve as the principal advisor to the USGS Regional Director and other staff on issues concerning 229 Alaska Native Tribes, 13 Alaska Native regional corporations, 200 village corporations, and other Tribal entities.
This Tribal Liaison and Outreach Coordinator position would serve as part of the Alaska Regional office and would not be an AK CASC Tribal Liaison, though opportunities for collaboration through this position would exist.
The right candidate has broad experience in working with Tribal/Indigenous communities, and is an expert in Alaska Native cultures and Federal law, and regulations as they apply to Alaska’s federally recognized tribes, along with serving as an expert advisor regarding formal government-to-government consultation with Alaska Native leaders.
