Cultural Resources Relevancy, Diversity & Inclusion

As a storyteller of our Nation’s past, the National Park Service is committed to connecting and amplifying all Americans’ stories throughout national parks and communities across the United States.

National Park Service Heritage Initiatives explore the rich and diverse legacy of all Americans:

  • American Latino Heritage Initiative
  • Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Initiative
  • Telling the Whole Story: Women and the Making of the United States
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Heritage Initiative

  • The Cultural Resources Office of Outreach and Diversity is located within Cultural Resources, Partnerships and Science, which includes historic preservation programs and applied research in archeology, history, cultural anthropology, cultural landscapes, historic structures, and museum collections. We are dedicated to diversifying the cultural resources and historic preservation field through new programs and approaches.

    As you explore these pages, we hope you find what you are looking for – but even more importantly, we hope you discover something that surprises you. We invite you to learn more about history and how the National Park Service works to preserve it.
