Cultural Resource Protection Program and Tribal Historic Preservation Office responsibilities include:

  • Site location, identification, and monitoring
  • Intergovernmental coordination; permit reviews
  • Cooperation with public land managers and private landowners
  • Section 106 National Historic Preservation Act consistency determinations
Cultural resource protection is the highest priority of the the Cultural Division. Cultural resource protection focuses on the protection of archaeological sites and traditional cultural properties. Federal laws including the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA); the Archaeological Resource Protection Act (ARPA), the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), and the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA); State of Oregon laws including ORS 97.745 and ORS 358.920; Oregon Land Use Planning Goal 5; Coos County Zoning and Land Development Ordinance; and City of Florence Land Development Ordinance governs cultural resource protection on public and private land.

Private landowners have been very supportive of cultural resource protection on their property. The Confederated Tribes have a long track record of working with landowners on development projects which both meet the needs of the landowner and protect the value of the cultural resource.
