On this episode of THPO Talk in our Stronger Together Series, we host the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate, SD and the Florida Seminoles, FL Historic Preservation Officers for a continued discussion on the Federal Register Notice filed by the Army seeking comments to modernize the Civil Works program.
Tribes have a history of being denied full tribal consultation on linear projects where the USACE are the lead agency and has limited jurisdiction, negating tribal input that is afforded through the National Historic Preservation Act to protect Cultural Resources.
Following the conversation with former assistant to Asst. Secretary Darcy, Chip Smith brought forth some great dialogue in the first episode of Stronger Together, but today, hear from the tribes and their existing challenges.
