The Tribal Historic Preservation Office covers the areas of historic (passive) values:
Our Ancestors resting place (Cemetery)
Our Ancestor’s tangible material culture (Collections)
Our Ancestor’s traditional landscapes (Cultural Resources)
Our collective written and documented history (Archives)
These broad areas identify who we are as a sovereign nation and provide the basis for our establishment as a government.
The Tribal Historic Preservation Office mission and goals are to preserve the Tribe’s historic values and resources through defining programs, services, functions, and activities by engaging in consultation, collaboration, protection, and compliance on projects related to the treatment, preservation, and placement of our ancestors, material culture and landscapes.
