NATHPO holds annual meeting in Washington, DC
The National Association of Tribal Historic Preservation Officers (NATHPO) is holding its 10th annual meeting in Washington, D.C., this week.

The meeting kicked off with a reception last night. It continues today through Saturday with sessions at a hotel on Capitol Hill.

The highlight is expected to be a panel that will discuss a recent report that said the National Park Service has used more than $3 million in tribal grants for purposes not covered by the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act. The report was conducted by NATHPO and the Makah Nation of Washington.

Sherry Hutt, the director of the National NAGPRA Program, will take part in the discussion.
