Abstract or Summary
  • This dissertation presents an analysis of the historic preservation framework on tribal cultural resources management (CRM). It examines some of the challenges this framework poses to tribal governments working on cultural resources protection efforts within a compliance framework. An examination of five major laws that regulate the practice of CRM identifies some of the potential strengths and weaknesses of each law for meeting tribal CRM goals. A discussion of the background of CRM and tribal involvement in CRM efforts is presented in the context of cultural and environmental resources management. An examination of environmental law, specifically the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is examined for its potential to strengthen tribal involvement in NEPA reviews and compliance efforts that impact tribal lands and resources. A discussion of Tribal Environmental Policy Acts, their origin, history, and potential to assist tribal efforts and improve tribal participation and impact analysis in NEPA reviews is presented in the context of cultural resources management. Finally, the potential of a TEPA and TEPA development to assist tribal government efforts in review, assessment, and protection of cultural resources is presented as an additional tool for Tribal CRM that looks beyond historic preservation and includes a holistic treatment of environmental resources as cultural resources.
