OKLAHOMA CITY — The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) will hold a free webinar on tribal consultation in the Section 106 process on Thursday, December 8, at 10 a.m.

Ira Matt, director of the Office of Native American Affairs with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP), will make the presentation during the training session.

Registration is required.

More than three dozen tribal nations have headquarters in Oklahoma.

Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act stipulates that federal agencies must consider the effects of their undertakings on properties listed in or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. This webinar will help participants develop an understanding and skills for working with Indian tribes early in the Section 106 process.
