Tribal Historic Preservation Office

 

Our Tribe has formally assumed all functions of the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) on our aboriginal lands through our Tribal Historic Preservation Office (THPO). Our preservation program assumes official responsibility for a number of functions aimed at the preservation of significant historic properties. Those functions include training THPO staff, inter-tribal cooperation, identifying and maintaining inventories of culturally significant properties, nominating properties to national and tribal registers of historic places, conducting Section 106 reviews of Federal agency projects on our aboriginal territories, and conducting educational outreach programs on the importance of the tradition of preserving historic properties.
