Abstract

Drawing on interviews with key officials, documentary analysis, and participant observation this study demonstrated that Indigenous cultural values maintain a strong presence in the management processes and the public outputs of the Micronesian historic preservation offices (HPOs). The study also showed that the HPOs face numerous challenges from internal and external forces which need to be carefully navigated to ensure that appropriate consideration of Indigenous Islander values within their heritage operations is continued.
