TRIBAL
CONSULTATION

The staff of TerraX has years of experience facilitating consultation among numerous Federally and State-recognized Native American nations and the United States Government. 

At TerraX, We Take Our Responsibility to the Native Tribes of the Southeast Seriously.

As archaeologists in the southeastern United States, we confront the reality of Native American history on a daily basis. It’s our goal to treat all artifacts and burials associated with Indigenous peoples with the respect and dignity they deserve. Our team is trained and equipped to consult with Tribal representatives to ensure we preserve and honor the rich cultural traditions of the Native American communities in our region. Our role has covered everything from making travel and lodging arrangements to holding sensitivity training classes for the U.S. personnel attending the consultation meetings.

Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act Reporting

Our staff is prepared for the possibility that collections may need to be assessed for the presence of NAGPRA-related items. NAGPRA status reports are written during the curation phase of a project that has Native American burials and grave materials or when looking at previously-curated projects with NAGPRA-related grave materials.
