NATHPO Chair Becomes Voting Member of ACHP
The NATHPO Chair has served as an observer on the ACHP, meaning he or she was not a voting member, since the association was founded in 1998. With the President's signing of the National Park Service Centennial Act into law on December 16, 2016, NATHPO now enjoys equal status on the ACHP with the other 23 members of the ACHP. Its counterpart organization, the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers, became a voting member of the ACHP in 1980.
NATHPO's mission is to support the preservation, maintenance, and revitalization of the culture and traditions of Native peoples of the U.S. The association monitors federal and state government activities on issues that affect all tribes, including the federal government's identification, evaluation, and management of tribal historic properties.
Ledford is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the Makah Tribe in Neah Bay, WA. She also serves on the Washington State Governor's Advisory Council for Historic Preservation, and has been executive director of the Makah Cultural and Research Center since 1995.
