Explore the consultation process mandated by federal laws as it pertains to Native American sacred lands. Review the guidelines from both tribal and federal land-managing agencies' perspectives. Consider the legal, historical, and cultural factors that influence consulting parties. Discuss ways to use the consultation process in conjunction with other tools, such as land trusts, restrictive covenants, and property purchases by tribes or nonprofit conservancies, to achieve a protected status for culturally significant places.
