EPA Launches New Tribal Portal Website
Submitted by Kathy Helms
Washington, DC July 26, 2007
The Environmental Protection Agency has launched the first-of-its-kind portal website to help the tribal community, its supporters and the public find tribal environmental information and data through a single web-based access point.
Announced at the National Tribal Operations Committee (NTOC) meeting in Washington, DC, the portal is part of EPA¹s commitment to strengthen its partnership with Indian tribes and governments to protect human health and the environment.
Established in 1994, the NTOC comprises 19 tribal leaders and senior Agency leaders, and meets once a year to discuss implementation of tribal environmental protection programs.
Currently, there are approximately 560 separate, federally-recognized tribal governments in the United States. For centuries, Native Americans have been respected for their commitment to Mother Earth.
"At EPA, we share in the obligation to pass down a cleaner, healthier environment to future generations," said EPA Administrator Stephen L. Johnson. "This new Web site reflects EPA¹s ongoing efforts to reach-out to the tribal community in order to accelerate human health and environmental protection in Indian country."
The new cross-agency website allows EPA to consolidate and share environmental information reflecting the tribal community¹s perspective and needs into a central, easy-to-navigate structure.
Various EPA programs, such as enforcement, waste, underground storage tanks and water, are also consolidating their tribal information through this website. The site integrates the tribal content and functionality of many existing agency programs and regional websites.
These functions include:
Central, easy-to-navigate structure.
Reliable, comprehensive source
Functional tool for tribal environmental information and data
The site will help users save time and resources by making it easier to locate tribal environmental information within EPA and other government agencies.

Stamp Pays Tribute To Membertou
Submitted by Ann VanWert
The Daily News
The fourth stamp in Canada Post's French Settlement series will have a face familiar to some Nova Scotians. Grand Chief Membertou, a Mi'kmaq leader, is on a new 52-cent stamp.
Membertou worked with the French and developed a strong relationship until his death in 1611. According to Cape Breton University, in 1610 Membertou became the first North American native to be baptized a Catholic.
Three million stamps of Membertou were produced. .
