Abstract (in English)

PART 2. RECOGNIZING INTANGIBLE HERITAGE AND DIVERSE PERSPECTIVES - Intangible Heritage as a Driver of Cultural Landscape Management and Holistic Conservation /// Since the first publication of National Register Bulletin 38, traditional cultural properties (TCP) have gained acceptance within the cultural resource management and historic preservation professions. Nevertheless, there remains resistance to the recognition that places of traditional religious and cultural significance can encompass entire natural landscapes—traditional cultural landscapes (TCLs). This resistance is rooted in a fundamental misunderstanding of the existing legal framework of heritage preservation. This paper demonstrates that the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), its regulations, and its guidance not only recognize TCLs, but encourage their identification and protection. TCLs reflect intimate relationships between culture and nature, where each is influenced by and dependent upon the other. Recognizing TCLs and understanding how they fit with the NHPA provides tribes with a powerful tool to advocate for holistic approaches to cultural and environmental protection, consistent with their experiences, expressions, and understandings of the significance of place.
