                      1989 Winter Conference
                        Tacoma, Washington

                         Resolution #89-02


     We, the members of the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians 
of the United States, invoking the divine blessings of the Creator 
upon our efforts and purposes, in order to preserve for ourselves 
and our descendants rights secured under Indian treaties and 
agreements with the United States, and all other rights and 
benefits to which we are entitled under the laws and Constitution 
of the United States and several States, to enlighten the public 
toward a better understanding of the Indian people, to preserve 
Indian cultural values, and otherwise promote the welfare of the 
Indian people, do hereby establish and submit the following 

     WHEREAS, the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians (ATNI) 
are representatives of and advocates for national, regional, and 
specific tribal concerns;  and 

     WHEREAS, the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians is a 
regional organization comprised of American Indians in the states 
of Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Nevada, northern 
California, and Alaska;  and 

     WHEREAS, the health, safety, welfare, education, economic and 
employment opportunity, and preservation of cultural and natural 
resources are primary goals and objectives of Affiliated Tribes of 
Northwest Indians;  and 

     WHEREAS, Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians in October 
1986 established a Task Force to address the indirect cost and 
P.L. 93-638 contracting problems and issues.  The members of the 
Task Force included W. Ron Allen (Chairman), Ken Smith, Jim 
Sizemore, Robert Peterson, and Lloyd Coon;  and 

     WHEREAS, the members of the ATNI Task Force were requested by 
the Co-Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Indian Affairs 
to participate in the development of the amendments (S.1703 & HR 
1223) to P.L. 93-638 that would remove many obstacles in the Self-
Determination Act process;  and 

     WHEREAS, P.L. 100-472 has become law authorizing the 
amendments;  and 

     WHEREAS, an important proviso of the new law is that the 
Tribes will participate in the drafting of the implementing 
regulations;  and 

     WHEREAS, ATNI recognizes that the development of these 
regulations are extremely important as they will translate 
legislative authorization into administrative terms and therefore 
determine the effectiveness of the amendments to P.L. 93-638;  and 

     WHEREAS, the administrative requirements imposed in the past 
have more accurately reflected the interests of the managing 
agencies as opposed to Congressional intentions;  and 

     WHEREAS, the Northwest tribes have devoted a considerable 
amount of time and effort in the development of the P.L. 93-638 
amendments;  and 

     WHEREAS, the Northwest tribes desires to continue with full 
participation in the process of implementing the P.L. 93-638 
amendments and their accompanying regulations;  now 

     THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that ATNI does hereby request that 
the Secretary of Interior include Lloyd Coon (ATNI Delegate) and 
W. Ron Allen (ATNI Alternate) as members of the ATNI Task Force to 
participate on the regulation writing team for the amendments to 
the P.L. 93-638;  and 

     BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that ATNI authorized its Task Force 
members to continue its involvement in this process to assure that 
the regulations for P.L. 100-472 (the 638 Amendment Bill) are 
consistent with the intent of the law. 


     The following resolution was adopted at the 1989 Winter 
Conference of the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians, at the 
Executive Inn Hotel in Tacoma, Washington on February 1-3, 1989 
with a quorum present.
