Today the Northern Chumash Tribal Council is involved in consultation with County and Local Governments to improve the respect for our cultural resources and to improve the quality of archaeology performed during the evaluation given to our ancestors during the decision making process for land use issues in San Luis Obispo County. This will offer a more complete project analysis for the protection of “Cultural Places and Sacred Sites”. NCTC is also working with the development community to assist them in the planning process so that we better understand each others’ concerns.
The Northern Chumash Tribal Council is looking at self sustainability through working within the community. NCTC has leased land to start our organic farm. We will be self-reliant through agriculture and businesses in the community and not from a casino. NCTC is not looking for Federal recognition, we are not waiting for anyone to give us anything. We understand that if we work together with common goals we will be able to achieve our vision.
