Hosted by California tribes, THPO/SHPO summits provide an opportunity to discuss a variety of topics and issues related to tribal historic preservation concerns. Summits typically occur once per year, though not necessarily on an annual basis. Attendees include tribal members, tribal historic preservation officers (THPOs), federal, state, and local agency representatives, and the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) and staff from the California Office of Historic Preservation (OHP). The OHP is pleased to participate in these summits as part of our partnership with California’s tribal communities, and in fulfillment of goals outlined in Sustainable Preservation: California's Statewide Historic Preservation Plan 2013-2017.

The 2017 Summit offers an opportunity to explore and improve communication, consultation, and cooperation between Tribes and state and federal agencies that manage historic properties and resources in California.
