Tribal Desk

Message to Tribal Leaders from Secretary Mayorkas


The Tribal Desk within the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs (IGA) is the designated lead for tribal relations and consultation at the Department of Homeland Security. IGA serves as the main point of contact between the Secretary and tribal leaders across the country, working with our intergovernmental partners across the Department to coordinate Department-level engagement of elected officials, or their designees, related to key Department policy decisions. The Department continues to improve our nation-to-nations relationship by working and consulting with federally recognized tribal governments.


David Munro
Director of Tribal Affairs
