Wireless Infrastructure Dialogue with Tribal Nations at Annual Conference of National Association of Tribal Historic Preservation Officers

August 10 – August 11
11154 CA-76, Pala, CA 92059

The Competition and Infrastructure Policy Division, Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, and the Office of Native Affairs and Policy, Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, will engage in a dialogue with Tribal representatives addressing issues associated with the deployment of wireless technologies and compliance with the FCC's Section 106 process.  This meeting complements the FCC's ongoing consultation with Tribal Nations regarding the issues raised in the FCC's April 2017 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Notice of Inquiry (Accelerating Wireless Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment). The discussion will focus on questions raised in the NPRM and in particular on how best to improve the process for Tribal participation in Section 106 review in the interest of all participants.  Participation is limited to representatives of Tribal Nations.  Preregistration is not required, but individuals who will be attending only the FCC dialogue and not the NATHPO conference are requested to e-mail Maira Delao,, so that we can get a sense of numbers.


If you have any questions, please contact Maira Delao,, 202-418-7171, or Carolyn Conyers,, 202-418-2002.
