Preserving Our Past and Providing For Our Future: Heritage Management at Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation, Montana
Author(s): Kelsey Noack Myers
Like all Tribal Historic Preservation Offices, our staff are required to wear many hats. The diversity of projects undertaken by the Chippewa Cree Cultural Resources Preservation Department (CCCRPD) includes on-reservation resource documentation and mitigation, educational programming for the local community, development of governmental agency policies and procedures, and consultation on repatriation and current archaeological and museum research. In addition, the CCCRPD has developed the Tribal106 digital consultation system in order to facilitate timely responses to project notices received by the FCC and other agencies seeking to comply with Section 106 requirements. This program works in concert with the Tribal Field Technician program that we have developed to standardize site monitoring and reporting by tribal members who participate as our representatives during construction projects off-reservation in the nine states identified as the ancestral homeland of the Chippewa (Ojibwa) and Cree (Nei-yahw) people. All of these activities are undertaken to reinforce the sovereignty of federally-recognized tribes as a whole, and to promote positive and productive ongoing relationships within our tribal community and with non-tribal entities.
