The National Park Service (we, NPS) proposes to authorize agreements between the NPS and federally recognized Indian tribes to allow the gathering of plants or plant parts by designated tribal members for traditional purposes. The agreements would facilitate continuation of tribal cultural traditions on traditionally associated lands that now are included within units of the National Park System without impairment to park resources and values. The proposed rule respects tribal sovereignty and the government-to-government relationship between the United States and the tribes and would provide systemwide consistency to this aspect of NPS-tribal relations.
