Abstract: Gathering and removing plants or plant parts is currently prohibited in National Park System areas unless specifically authorized by Federal statute or treaty rights or conducted under the limited circumstances authorized by an existing regulation codified in 36 CFR 2.1(c). Regulations codified in 36 CFR part 2 allow the gathering and removal of plants or plant parts by enrolled members of federally recognized tribes for traditional purposes. The regulations authorize agreements between the NPS and federally recognized tribes to facilitate the continuation of tribal cultural practices on lands within areas of the National Park System where those practices traditionally occurred, without causing a significant adverse impact to park resources or values. The regulations: • Respect tribal sovereignty and cultural practices, • further the government-togovernment relationship between the United States and the Indian Tribes, • provide system-wide consistency for this aspect of NPS-Tribal relations. E:\FR\FM\05JNN1.SGM 05JNN1 26155 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 108 / Wednesday, June 5, 2019 / Notices The agreements explicitly recognize the special government-to-government relationship between the United States and Indian Tribes, and are based upon mutually agreed upon terms and conditions subject to the requirements of 36 CFR 2.6(f). The agreements serve as the documents through which the NPS authorizes tribal gathering implemented by an accompanying permit authorized by 36 CFR 1.6. Only enrolled members of a federally recognized tribe are allowed to collect plants or plant parts, and the tribe must be traditionally associated with the specific park area. This traditional association must predate the establishment of the park. The plant gathering must meet a traditional purpose that is a customary activity and practice rooted in the history of the tribe and is important for the continuation of the tribe’s distinct culture. Authorized plant gathering must be sustainable and may not result in a significant adverse impact on park resources or values. The sale and commercial use of plants or plant parts within areas of the National Park System will continue to be prohibited by the NPS regulations in 36 CFR 2.1(c)(3)(v). The information collections associated with 36 CFR part 2 include: (1) The initial request from a tribe that we enter into an agreement with the tribe for gathering and removal of plants or plant parts for traditional purposes. The request must include the information specified in § 2.6(c). (2) The agreement defines the terms under which the NPS may issue a permit to a tribe for plant gathering purposes. To make determinations based upon tribal requests or to enter into an agreement, we may need to collect information from specific tribal members or tribes who make requests.

    Abstract: Gathering and removing plants or plant parts is currently 
prohibited in National Park System areas unless specifically authorized 
by Federal statute or treaty rights or conducted under the limited 
circumstances authorized by an existing regulation codified in 36 CFR 
2.1(c). Regulations codified in 36 CFR part 2 allow the gathering and 
removal of plants or plant parts by enrolled members of federally 
recognized tribes for traditional purposes. The regulations authorize 
agreements between the NPS and federally recognized tribes to 
facilitate the continuation of tribal cultural practices on lands 
within areas of the National Park System where those practices 
traditionally occurred, without causing a significant adverse impact to 
park resources or values. The regulations:
     Respect tribal sovereignty and cultural practices,
     further the government-to-government relationship between 
the United States and the Indian Tribes,
     provide system-wide consistency for this aspect of NPS-
Tribal relations.

[[Page 26155]]

    The agreements explicitly recognize the special government-to-
government relationship between the United States and Indian Tribes, 
and are based upon mutually agreed upon terms and conditions subject to 
the requirements of 36 CFR 2.6(f). The agreements serve as the 
documents through which the NPS authorizes tribal gathering implemented 
by an accompanying permit authorized by 36 CFR 1.6. Only enrolled 
members of a federally recognized tribe are allowed to collect plants 
or plant parts, and the tribe must be traditionally associated with the 
specific park area. This traditional association must predate the 
establishment of the park. The plant gathering must meet a traditional 
purpose that is a customary activity and practice rooted in the history 
of the tribe and is important for the continuation of the tribe's 
distinct culture. Authorized plant gathering must be sustainable and 
may not result in a significant adverse impact on park resources or 
values. The sale and commercial use of plants or plant parts within 
areas of the National Park System will continue to be prohibited by the 
NPS regulations in 36 CFR 2.1(c)(3)(v).
    The information collections associated with 36 CFR part 2 include:
    (1) The initial request from a tribe that we enter into an 
agreement with the tribe for gathering and removal of plants or plant 
parts for traditional purposes. The request must include the 
information specified in Sec.  2.6(c).
    (2) The agreement defines the terms under which the NPS may issue a 
permit to a tribe for plant gathering purposes. To make determinations 
based upon tribal requests or to enter into an agreement, we may need 
to collect information from specific tribal members or tribes who make 
requests. The agreement must contain the information specified in Sec.  
2.6(f).
    (3) Tribes may submit an appeal to the NPS to provide additional 
information on historical relationship of the tribe, traditional uses 
of plants to be gathered, and/or the impact of gathering on the 
resource of concern in the event of a denial by the NPS on this issue.
