The Division of Historic Preservation has prioritized in
its mission the need to provide and educate the public with
more information about the CNMI's rich historical legacy.
Documenting the history of cultural practices, environment
change, oral histories and events of the past, and providing
information for future studies and research are pivotal
areas that HPO diligently strives to research and pursue
with its education and preservation activities.
The Division of Historic Preservation has three sections
from which to view or learn more information about the CNMI's
ancient culture and traditions. With HPO's Ethnographic
and Historical publications, citizens of the CNMI can be
more aware of their heritage and culture. It's Micronesian
Archaeological Survey (MAS) Reports will provide researchers
or the public with information pertaining to Micronesia's
historical sites and treasures, with more emphasis on archaeology.
In addition, HPO has a significant amount of professional
papers compiled over the years and wants it to be made available
to the public. These resources will provide more in-depth
information for scholars and citizens to develop better
HPO is proud of its publications collection, especially
as our office continues to produce and provide the CNMI
