    The Environmental Protection Agency has an Indian Environmental General Assistance Program that provides grants to individual tribes to monitor environmental resources and pollution. The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation in northeastern Oregon and of the Yakama Indian Nation in Washington have been working with EPA on clean-up of hazardous waste sites. Many tribes work with the federal government, as do states, on regulating and maintaining their natural resources. For example, the KeWeenaw Bay Indian Community in Michigan runs a variety of programs ranging from fishery management to wetland management.
