Our 22nd Annual Conference will again be virtual and will be held February 22-25, 2022!!
21st National Tribal Preservation Conference
Resilience in a Changing Environment
January 27 & 28, 2021
We are excited to announce the 21st Annual Tribal Historic Preservation Conference is Virtual! And will be hosted by the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana January 27 & 28, 2021! This year’s conference theme is “Resilience in a Changing Environment.” The significance is two-fold, reflecting the growing challenges faced by tribal historic preservation leaders in adapting to and mitigating impacts to significant places from both a changing global climate and an altered political landscape. This is also a time of exciting transition and a new direction for NATHPO. If our greatest opportunities come from our greatest challenges, how can we use this time to maximize positive outcomes for tribal historic preservation?
The coronavirus (COVID-19) circumstances make a virtual meeting necessary at this time, especially the CDC’s recommendation that all gatherings of 50 people or more. The Board is concerned about the health and safety of our members, conference participants, and their loved ones.
