The vast-scale projects currently being undertaken within the Everglades, collectively referred to as Everglades Restoration, represent an enormous challenge in terms of Tribal consultation. In broad terms, few people relate the Everglades to a cultural environment, and most research undertaken to date has been biologically driven. Despite the intensity of research, basic questions regarding the building blocks of the Everglades ecosystem—tree islands—remain largely unanswered. Archaeological research demonstrates that as long as the Everglades have existed people have lived within this environment. Discussion regarding restoration therefore must include a cultural voice. The enormity of the task is made clear by referencing the wall-sized Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan map that adorns the wall of the THPO. Each component of the overall project is given an individual designation and assigned a project management team. The challenge, as with many interrelated projects occurring at any given time, is ensuring a Tribal voice is heard.
