The Section 106 of the NHPA protects different types of places that are important to the cultural wellbeing of a tribe. This includes archaeological sites, places where traditional activities still occur, and places where the people traditionally harvested plants or other materials to create traditional crafts, objects, or materials.
The CPP conducts Section 106 consultation on new development off the reservation that lies within our aboriginal claims area that is either on federal land, is paid for with federal money, or requires a federal license to take place. The Section 106 Program is also responsible for processing all incoming correspondence from various agencies so a determination can be made as to what program will facilitate the consultation.
