WASHINGTON, D.C.– President Barack Obama has announced his intent to appoint Luis Hoyos to an Expert Member seat on the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP).

Hoyos is an architect and Professor of Architecture at the California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, where he teaches historic preservation and urban design. He has received awards for the design of several historic building rehabilitations, including El Pueblo de Los Angeles, the Point Fermin Lighthouse, the Palmer Hotel and the Cabrillo Beach Bathhouse.

An 8-year-old in Michigan is fast becoming a celebrity for his ingenious plan to teach history to passersby in his neighborhood. Read the story here.

The Marine Corps Poster Series highlights historic properties in Marine Corps care. The ACHP worked with staff at the Marine Corps and the National Park Service to support showcasing historic properties and giving the story of their founding and use by the Marines throughout history. The “Defending Our Cultural Heritage” sites featured included the Oldest Post in the Corps: Marine Corps Barracks Washington; World War II Legacy at Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii; Montford Point training camp for the first African American Marines at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina; 450-year Expeditionary Legacy at Parris Island, South Carolina; and Remembering California’s Ranches, San Diego, California, near Camp Pendleton.

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) formally endorsed a plan to support the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples at its Winter Business Meeting on March 1, 2013.

“This is an opportunity to promote better stewardship and protection of Native historic properties and sacred places, and in doing so helps to ensure survival of indigenous cultures,” said Milford Wayne Donaldson, FAIA, ACHP chairman. “The Declaration reinforces the agency’s principles and goals contained in our Native American Traditional Cultural Landscapes Action Plan and other works with Native Hawaiian organizations and tribes.”

Four cabinet-level departments joined the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) today in signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to improve the protection of Indian sacred sites. 

The MOU also calls for improving tribal access to sites. It was signed by the ACHP’s chairman, and the secretaries of the Departments of Agriculture, Defense, Energy and the Interior.
