Plan approved to convert Desert View area at Grand Canyon NP to tribal heritage site

A Finding of No Significant Impact was signed by Kate Hammond, acting Regional Director for the Intermountain Region of the National Park Service, for a site plan to both transform Desert View in Grand Canyon National Park into an Inter-tribal Cultural Heritage Site and share a unifying message from the park's traditionally associated tribes: "we are still here." 

The National Park Service is committed to honoring the cultural, historic, and spiritual connections that each tribe holds to the Grand Canyon. The effort would provide Grand Canyon National Park visitors with greater understanding of Native American use and cultural views of the canyon via an Inter-tribal Cultural Heritage Site at Desert View.
