Native Cultural Resource Management: A Proposal for Training.
Schneider, William
Given the July 1st, 1976 deadline for selection by the Alaska Native corporations of historical, archaeological, and cemetery sites under 14 (h) (1) of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, the corporations need to know how to protect their resources; what opportunities the Federal and State governments and the professional community can provide to help meet this need; and when such opportunities should be made available. It is important, then, that the Native corporations plan to train Native people as cultural resource managers to: monitor regional development plans; serve as contacts for subregional groups; coordinate the timing and execution of Environmental Impact Statements; set up cultural centers; control trespassers; serve as coordinating contacts for State and Federal agencies involved in preservation; identify professionals as resource people; secure aid in developing Native regional plans. The Federal and State governments and the professional community can respond to this need by providing training programs (Federal and State agency internships, formal course work in related fields, and regional corporation internships) in cultural resources management that initially provide awareness and promote community involvement, preservation knowledge, and self determination. A training program should be developed immediately to insure Native involvement in the decisions relative to preservation. (JC)
