In February of 2005, The Keweenaw Bay Indian Community Tribal Council assumed the responsibilities of the SHPO. By doing so the Tribal Historic Preservation Office was established. The Tribal Historic Preservation Office’s mission is to protect and preserve all aspects of Ojibwa (Aniishinabe), also known as Chippewa, culture including the aspects of development and protecting cultural sites and artifacts, as well as intellectual property rights for culturally specific language and art.
Section 106 refers to the federal review process designed to ensure the historic properties are considered during federal project planning and execution. The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, an independent federal agency, administers the review process with assistance from the state historic preservation office.
