Consultations

Consultation with the Quinault Indian Nation’s cultural resources officer is required prior to

ground-disturbing activities such as timber harvest on Quinault Indian Nation lands and within the Quinault areas of interest, primarily within the Chehalis watershed. Federal agencies must consult with Indian tribes that attach religious and cultural significance to historic properties, regardless of their location. The goal is to protect cultural and natural resources such as archaeological sites, traditional indigenous use sites, forests, clean air and water, fish and wildlife in addition to the habitat that all require to survive and thrive.

The QIN is working to establish a Tribal Historic Preservation Officer to manage its cultural resource/archaeological responsibilities. At this time, agencies with programs within the Quinault area of interest must consult with the Washington State Historical Preservation Office (http://www.dahp.wa.gov/) and the QIN’s current cultural resources manager.

“This is my land
From the time of the first Moon till the time of the last Sun
It was given to my People
Wha-neh Wha-neh, the great giver of life, made me out of the Earth of this land
He said, ‘You are the land, and the land is you’
I take well care of this land, for I am part of it....”
