New Boston Air Force Station Native American Interaction Plan, New Boston, Mount Vernon and Amherst, New Hampshire

Author(s): Timothy Light

Year: 2011


This report is intended to provide guidance and direction to New Boston Air Force Station in the development of a process for consulting with Native American tribes who may claim ancestral ties to the lands managed by NBAFS. This process is intended to identify areas and sites of concern to these tribes and establish an on-going program that will create a strong foundation for informal and formal negotiations and consultations between NBAFS and Native American tribes that will partially address the intent of Executive Order 13007, 24 May 1996 which mandates a government-to-government relationship with Native American tribes.

Tribal consultation is about building long-term positive relationships of trust between NBAFS and the tribes with historic ties to the lands now administered by the NBAFS. This document is only the first step in a process of re-connecting Tribal people to these lands and resources from which they have been separated for many generations. Neither this document nor the efforts made in its preparation constitute government-to-government consultation by NBAFS with any of the tribes included. Only the leadership and staff at NBAFS can undertake Tribal consultation. This document is intended to provide the background and a framework that can be used by NBAFS to start the formal process of consultation with the Tribal governments who may have an interest in the activities occurring at NBAFS.
