The ACHP acknowledges that climate impacts range from wildfires to flooding to drought and all can have devastating impacts on ​cultural practices associated with historic properties, sacred sites, traditional cultural landscapes, and other sites of religious and cultural importance to Indian Tribes and the Native Hawaiian community. 

​In order to address concerns, about climate impacts to historic properties, including those properties of religious and cultural significance, there is a need to identify and implement both proactive ​and reactive strategies incorporating Indian Tribes and Native Hawaiians, and their Traditional Knowledge. The ACHP further acknowledges that tribal treaty and reserved rights related to historic properties of religious and cultural significance, sacred sites and landscapes and other important cultural places may also be impacted by climate change.
