About this item

“Offers a unique perspective on tribal approaches to managing historic preservation and addresses the multiplicity of issues common to all tribal historic preservation groups.”—Joe Watkins, director, Tribal Relations and American Cultures Program, National Park Service
“A concise, detailed account regarding the enormity of the task THPOs face in successfully navigating the two worlds of federal historic preservation laws and statutes and tribal cultural beliefs, knowledge, and traditions.”—James Quinn, Tribal Historic Preservation Officer, Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut
“An important book. Highlights the complicated, confusing, and often contradictory world navigated by the intrepid personnel of the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s Tribal Historic Preservation Office.”—Ryan Wheeler, director, Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology  
As indigenous populations are being invited to participate in cultural heritage identification, research, interpretation, management, and preservation, they are faced with a high volume of challenging questions and demands. We Come for Good describes the development and operations of the Tribal Historic Preservation Office (THPO) of the Seminole Tribe of Florida as an example of how tribes can successfully manage and retain authority over the heritage of their respective cultures. With Native voices front and center, this book demonstrates ways THPOs can work within federal and tribal governments to build capacity and uphold tribal values—core principles of a strong tribal historic preservation program.
