Native American Liaison

Shelly Begay, Native American Liaison

HSD’s Native American Liaison monitors state-tribal issues for the Department, assists in formalizing the Department’s government-to-government relations, and works with the Department of Indian Affairs.

The Department works to achieve the goals and objectives of HSD’s Native American Initiative by liaising with tribal health and human services staff. Through outreach and communication, the liaison addresses tribal concerns and gathers input regarding Native American issues across multiple state and federal program areas.
