Session #6 (10:15 - 11:00 AM)
What’s Cultural About a Natural Resource?

As tribes, heritage managers, and archaeologists we are responsible for protecting cultural resources, but what constitutes a “cultural” resource?  How are they defined in the law and through our practice?  What opportunity exists to reframe these definitions so they are inclusive of not only tangible resources, such as archaeological sites, but also the intangible values and relationships people share with places?  Panelists will consider these questions as they outline the steps their offices and agencies have used to define cultural resources and develop heritage management strategies.

Panelists:  Briece Edwards, The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde
