Yosemite National Park will review its visitor brochures, information booths and historical archives to ensure that local tribes' ancestral ties to the treasured landscape are accurately reflected.

Acting Supt. Dave Uberuaga last month requested the sweeping reexamination of the park's tribal relations program, including an oft-visited American Indian replica village built near Yosemite's falls.

National Park Service officials say no other park has undertaken such a broad review of its storytelling about the sometimes brutal confrontations that helped create the country's cherished preserves.

The effort comes after criticism from the Mono Lake Paiutes, some of whom dispute how Yosemite's history has been portrayed.
