This workshop will help answer questions you might have about consultation: When do I begin consultation? Who do I call? Will I have to talk with more than one tribal member? Speakers include Nick Tipon, a Pomo elder and the vice-chairman of the Sacred Sites Committee of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria and Michael Newland, a Registered Professional Archaeologist with the Anthropological Study Center at Sonoma State University. Nick and Mike have worked with many lead agencies on consultation and have offered to share their views and approaches. This event is free. Lunch will be provided.
