Tribes and Parks

There have been a couple of news items recently about the relationships of other tribes with their neighboring parks:
        The Hopi Tribe is working with the State of Arizona to reopen Homolovi Ruins State Park, which had been closed for budget reasons.
        The Oglalla Sioux Tribe will be taking over the management of part of Badlands National Park, making it the first Tribal National Park.

We have a couple of books on this topic,

and of course much of the material about the ongoing removal of the dams on the Elwha River directly and indirectly addresses the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe's relations with Olympic National Park...
