The Historic Resources Management Branch of Alberta Culture works with Aboriginal communities to help preserve and protect their cultural heritage sites.
As part of the Historical Resources Act regulatory process, when a known traditional use site of an historic resources nature has the potential to be threatened by a development project, consultation with the Aboriginal community or avoidance of the site may be required. Traditional use sites of an historic resources nature that are known to Alberta Culture appear on the Listing of Historic Resources as a generalized legal land description. This informs developers if their proposed project has the potential to impact an historic resource without revealing the specific location and information about the traditional use site.
Alberta Culture also recognizes the benefit of working collaboratively with Aboriginal communities on the promotion and interpretation of Aboriginal cultural heritage and welcomes inquiries from communities who would like assistance in this regard.
