Indian Traders (25 CFR 140)
As part of our efforts to promote economic development in Indian Country, we are seeking your input on the need to update the "Licensed Indian Traders" regulations currently found at 25 CFR 140. The current regulations were promulgated in 1957 and have not been comprehensively updated since 1965. We seek to modernize these regulations through the formal rulemaking process to reflect the current Federal policy of promoting tribal self-determination.
The Tribal Leader letter announcing the consultations session is available here.
The Indian Affairs presentation "Identifying Economic Priorities in Indian Country" (PDF) is available here.
