Institutional histories are often rarely considered when measuring the performance of an organization. This is largely because the metrics that are used to measure performance are derived from the world of business and are therefore geared towards optimization. The following chapter goes against the grain in presenting a biographical institutional history which examines the temporal evolvement of the THPO. As the Seminole Tribe of Florida undertakes to launch a Tribal-wide computerized permitting system for on-reservation development, the reality is that less than a decade ago requests for cultural review were more typically obtained by happenstance during trips to the on-reservation trading post for gas. Examined through a historical lens the fluidity of organizational dynamics underscores the administrative and technological leaps felt necessary by the Tribe to productively conduct heritage management in the early twenty-first century.
