Understanding location and significance of cultural resources is essential to their preservation and consideration during planning processes. This project’s goal has been to develop a proactive approach for working with Native American communities, identify areas of significance while respecting cultural practices and understanding. This effort facilitates decision-making and insures consideration of cultural practices and places; giving Tribal communities a stronger voice during planning.
