Description: The goal of this project is to host tribal consultations and gatherings that support cultural traditions and facilitate government to government relationship building. The Pipestone Indian Shrine Association will work collaboratively with Pipestone National Monument to plan and host tribal consultations and gatherings that provide an opportunity to discuss the unique resources that are preserved and protected through the Monument with Native American Tribal partners in a culturally appropriate setting that recognizes and incorporates tribal custom and traditions. Strong relationships with tribal partners are necessary to managing Pipestone National Monument in keeping with its enabling legislation. The monument was designated for the enduring cultural significance of the pipestone quarries, and ongoing dialogue with tribes and American Indian communities is critical to the interpretation and preservation of this special place. The Pipestone Indian Shrine Association is uniquely positioned to support productive intercultural and intergovernmental dialogue. The Pipestone Indian Shrine Association is a non-profit cooperating association established in 1955 to preserve the vanishing art of pipemaking and assist Pipestone National Monument in the development of scientific, educational and interpretive programs. Since the 1970s, the Shrine has employed American Indian cultural demonstrators, some of whom are fourth and fifth generation pipestone carvers. Through its employees and members, the Shrine has relationships with American Indian communities and strong knowledge of cultural traditions. The NPS and the Pipestone Indian Shrine Association will collaborate to jointly organize visits by culturally affiliated tribes and tribal stakeholders. Together, the NPS and Shrine will host approximately five tribal visits for government-to-government consultations and/or relationship-building. The Shrine will provide a suitable space and other culturally appropriate necessities such as meals, speakers, and materials.
