The goal of the Tribal Advisory Committee (AC) is to create a forum where California Native American Tribes and organizations can help to develop the material in the California Water Plan Update 2013 and ensure Tribal perspectives on land, water, and culture are included in those materials. Coordination between the Tribal AC, the State Agency Steering Committee, and Federal Agency Network is the next step to developing policy recommendations and strategies that are responsive to the water concerns of California Tribal communities and governments.
