Identify tribes and provide appropriate tribal contact information to assist with initiating Section 106 consultation. The Tribal Directory Assessment Tool (TDAT) is a web-accessible database that contains information about federally recognized Indian tribes and their geographic areas of current and ancestral interest. TDAT links tribes' areas of interest down to the county level. It lists names and contact information for tribal leaders and Tribal Historic Preservation Officers (THPOs). Users can query the database by street address, county, state, and tribe. Information generated from TDAT can be exported in spreadsheet format for use in other programs. TDAT was designed to help users quickly identify tribes and provide appropriate tribal contact information to assist with initiating Section 106 consultation.
