“Traditional cultural places” (TCPs) play an important role in community cultural traditions, beliefs, and activities. TCPs must be considered in planning under the National Environmental Policy Act, the National Historic Preservation Act, Executive Orders 12898 and 13007, and other authorities. Review methods of identifying TCPs, discuss evaluation for National Register eligibility, and explore management issues.

“[I learned] the breadth of property types and settings that constitute TCPs.”
“[The seminar] gave many practical examples of real TCPs and how they were established and/or managed or mitigated.”
“Provided ideas on developing a TCP plan and explained general tendencies that will help eliminate mistakes.”
“[This seminar] was in no way a dry presentation of “laws and guidelines” [but gave] very good real situation examples.”
