A CULTURAL RESOURCES STUDY OF PROPOSED TIMBER SALE AREAS AND ROAD IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS ON THE HOOPA VALLEY INDIAN RESERVATION, HUMBOLDT COUNTY, CALIFORNIA
A cultural resources inventory was conducted of approximately 1,038 acres contained within 25 separate timber sale parcels and 1.1 miles of road improvement areas located in the Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation, California (HVIR). For the timber sale parcels a mixed strategy survey technique, that was proposed on the basis of earlier cultural resource surveys within the HVIR, was employed and its effectiveness and utility evaluated. The survey of the road inprovement areas was accomplished by walking along both sides of the road in a zig-zag fashion. Interviews with knowledgeable Native Americans were conducted regarding possible sacred and cultural sites within both Project areas. The field investigation of the timber sale parcels resulted in the recording of one historic cabin and two prehistoric sites. None of these were situated within a timber sale parcel. Field investigations of the road improvement areas failed to locate any significant cultural resources.
