Description
 
This report calls for the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) and the Forest Service to work more closely with tribal governments in the protection, respectful interpretation and appropriate access to Indian sacred sites. It recommends steps the Forest Service should take to strengthen the partnerships between the agency, tribal governments, and American Indian and Alaska Native communities to help preserve America's rich native traditions. Sacred sites are currently defined by Executive Order 13007 signed in 1996, which focuses on specific sites and Indian religion. The report recommends that the UDA take a broader view by also considering cultural and landscape perspectives. The report is a culmination of more than 100 meetings with tribal members and agency employee surveys. Among the recommendations is for Forest Service employees to receive training about tribal history, law and cultural sensitivities. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
