Project Title: Alibates Flint Quarries Ethnographic Overview/ Traditional Use Study

 

This Traditional Use Study at Alibates Flint Quarries National Monument, Fritch, TX will document traditional, historic, and on-going community use of, natural and/or cultural resources and places of cultural significance (i.e. specific locations, plant/mineral/animal species, specific cultural resource sites, etc.) within ALFL. A TUS is collaborative by design, and the participating tribes and other distinct cultural communities will have a significant role in all aspects of the project. This project will provide information to work more directly and effectively with traditionally associated and distinct cultural communities, and to provide information for park planning, interpretation, and resource management.

 

Project funds available are approximately $70,000 per year for two fiscal years. The actual amount of funding for the second fiscal year is contingent on future appropriations.
