Tribal Cultural and Historic Preservation

Discover your tribe's power within the context of cultural resource management. In this important class, we'll review tribal strategies for identifying, evaluating and protecting cultural, historic and archaeological resources. We'll explore how you can leverage federal laws and regulations, like NHPA and Bulletin 38, without compromising your tribe's own vision and values, and discuss effective strategies, standard practices and innovative plans to protect your tribe's precious cultural and historic resources.

Come ready to explore tactics for handling intergovernmental paternalism and strategies for preventing and addressing sacred site resource desecration.

This class is perfect for tribal archaeologists, cultural resource specialists, and anyone involved in the protection or promotion of tribal cultural and historic resources.
