Abstract:

This report provides a bibliography of published material related to issues of Native American access to Department of Defense DoD facilities. In addition, the report documents the results of telephone contacts with DoD command centers and individual Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marine Corps facilities regarding the presence of sites located on land within DoD jurisdiction that are of known or probable interest to Native American groups. Concerns were identified by contacts regarding a historicalarchaeological, b burial, c botanical, d hunting, an e sacred sites. The report summarizes information provided by the telephone contacts about the interactions between DoD personnel and Native Americans regarding these sites. At facilities where there are known sites, the relations between DoD personnel and Native American groups range from no interaction at all to formal agreements specific to the groups with interests at the facility. An extensive set of appendices at the end of the report provides examples of policies regarding interactions between U.S. military installations and Native American groups and of formal agreements governing these interactions.
