In this podcast we introduce Moccasin Tracks and interview with Doug Harris(Deputy Officer for Narragansett Indian Tribe Historic Preservation Office)and attorney for the Narragansett Nation and NITHPO in this effort, Anne Marie Garti. Anne Marie tells us a little about the National Historic Preservation Act and the Federal Energy Regulation Commission (FERC) and reads us some of the legal law. It is thru these legal challenges that the Tribal Historic Preservation Offices can protect the “Manitou Has-suk” or spirit stones. Doug tells us how tribes and towns are entering into MOU (memorandum of understanding) to identify religious, cultural ceremonial sites and petition the agencies for protection of these sites. He is working with other Tribes in the East in this effort and invites state recognized tribes to work with them. Doug has submitted definitions of these sites to the National Registry of Historic Places. Doug Harris is a preservationist for ceremonial landscapes. His guidance comes from the Elders of his community and he asks us all to, “let the landscape speak for itself”. An honor to talk with Anne and Doug. Thank-you for listening. ** from Moccasin Tracks broadcast on Nov 15, 2017 at WRUV FM Burlington.
