Abstract: This report summarizes the result of a literature and bibliographic review and telephone survey of Department of Defense (DoD) installations that focused on issues related to Native American access to religious and sacred sites located on DoD lands. The report briefly examines the nature of religious and sacred sites, the legal framework for allowing Native American access to these properties, and current DoD policies concerning access issues. The nationwide telephone survey yielded considerable information on current Native American access programs at DoD installations. Using these data, a recommendation is made for an approach that will result in a better understanding of Native American access needs by DoD personnel.
