(AP) - American Indian communities in New Mexico and Arizona are among the dozens of tribes that will share $2.2 million in historic preservation grants.
    
The funding was announced Thursday by the National Park Service.
    
The pueblos of Pojoaque, Santa Ana and Zuni and the Mescalero and Jicarilla Apache will share nearly $92,000.
    
In Arizona, the San Carlos Apache, White Mountain Apache, Tohono O'odham, Hualapai and Gila River Indian Community will get more than $100,000.
    
The funds will go toward programs that range from the preservation of native languages and oral history to the protection of sacred and historic places.
    
Tribes can also use the money to prepare nominations to the National Register of Historic Places, for the development of community preservation plans and for repairs to historic buildings.
