The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) last week sent letters to U.S. House of Representatives leadership and the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, which convey the ACHP’s support for provisions of the Save Oak Flat Act. Oak Flat is a place of profound religious and cultural importance to multiple Indian tribes that would be substantially damaged by the proposed Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and the Resolution Copper Project. The letters also were shared with the Secretary of Agriculture and others in the Congress and the Administration.
