Indigenous Peoples Rights
The compartment review process is utilized to identify and protect special or unique areas of interest, including Indigenous Peoples Rights. As part of the compartment review process, all lands under consideration are forwarded to the Environmental Review Coordinator, Michigan History Center, 702 West Kalamazoo, Lansing, MI 48918 (also referred to as "SHPO" for State Historic Preservation Office).
Native American tribes receive notification of our open houses and compartment reviews.
Contacts vary by unit, and are available at each unit.
Tribes are welcome to participate in the compartment review process with all other interested publics.
In addition, GIS work has been conducted to assess the probability of archeological sites.
