Tribal Contacts for WSDOT Programs and Projects

This page includes contact information for following offices at each federally and non-federally recognized tribe: Chair, Cultural Resources, Natural Resources, Planning, and Human Resources/TERO. These are the first points of contact when you begin consultation with a tribe. If a tribe has multiple staff listed for a given department (e.g. cultural resources), you need to contact each of those staff when consulting with the tribe. A specific staff person might be assigned to work with you on an individual project or program. If in the process of consultation, the tribe informs you that a contact has permanently changed, please contact Megan Cotton, CottonM@wsdot.wa.gov.
