Tribes throughout the nation are not being consulted on the construction of cell-phone towers, said an analyst of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, an independent government group.

Charlene Dwin Vaughn said less than 5,000 of the 100,000 towers now in place underwent review for impact on sacred, archaeological and historic sites. In particular, she said tribes are rarely even contacted.

Vaughn made her remarks at a conference on towers and historic preservation held in New Mexico on Wednesday.
