Problems and Prospects of Restoring An Ethnographic Landscape in Redwood National and State Park
Nelson Siefkin, National Park Service, Pacific West Region, Oakland, CA
Recent management documents completed by Redwood National and State Parks pledge to assist local Native American communities in identifying, enhancing and maintaining an ethnographic landscape in the Bald Hills section of the park. The challenge lies in defining the nature of that landscape, as well as management strategies and tactics. To be certain, the appropriateness of certain National Park Service policies (e.g., prohibition on hunting) will need to be reevaluated in light of this pledge. This presentation summarizes developments to date and prospects for the future.
