Basic Introduction to Tribal Consultation: A Gypsum Cave Case Study

June 2024

Our Monthly Speaker Series proudly hosted Dr. Kathrina Aben - Tribal Liaison, BLM Southern Nevada District

Gypsum Cave is an archaeological site in Southern Nevada and historic property nominated on the National Register of Historic Properties. Aside from its archaeological and paleontological significance, the cave is important to past and present tribal communities. What is tribal consultation and why is is this needed for archaeological sites? Gypsum Cave is used as an example to introduce basic concepts of tribal consultation to assist federal staff and volunteers working on archaeological sites and with Native-American tribes.
