Collaborating on the Federal Level: Moving beyond Mandated Consultation in the Section 106 Process (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 431551] Kelly Britt.

Collaboration versus Consultation—while both terms involve working with stakeholders, consultation implies a formulaic, reactionary response or product and can produce negative connotations while collaboration suggests a voluntary, shared method and a mutual goal, invoking more positive connotations. Within archaeology, collaboration is not a new practice. Yet within this post-colonial approach to conducting archaeology there is little discussion around what this looks like within the public...


Connecting Section 106 and The National Historic Preservation Act to People: Creative Mitigation in the Public Interest (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 435024] John T. Eddins. Virginia Busby.

Reflecting on NHPA 50 years after its passage, it is its public relevance, engagement, and inclusiveness that increasingly enable it to protect the valued heritage of our diverse peoples.  Implemented wisely, with broad stakeholder involvement, and integrated with environmental considerations, NHPA, Section 106 in particular, can directly support future economic, cultural, and environmental sustainability.   From its beginnings NHPA provided flexibility that we have gradually grown more...


Consultants Are People Too: Meaningful Consultation and Archaeology (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 395295] Howard Higgins.

Gaining meaningful information from traditional community consultants can often be difficult. Furthermore, exactly what constitutes such information has changed over time. Recently the focus in archaeology has shifted from a point based search for specific locations to a landscape based approach aimed at information that can be used to define the attributes of traditional cultural properties, so that areas which could contain them can be managed. This paper explores the elements needed to...


Developing dialogue: A developer, First Nation band member, and archaeologist discuss the role of meaningful consultation in CRM (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 429914] Aviva Finkelstein. Wayne Point. Ben Jun.

As stated in the SAA’s Principles of Archaeological Ethics, "Responsible archaeological research [requires a commitment to] consult actively with affected group(s), with the goal of establishing a working relationship that can be beneficial to all parties involved". In the context of professional consulting archaeology, meaningful consultation with descendant communities is often held as a primary goal. However, CRM archaeologists are faced developers’ timelines and budgets, which can preclude...


Notification Is Not Consultation: Ethical Practices in Community and Indigenous Archaeology (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434352] Kelsey Noack Myers. Alvin Windy Boy. Sr..

In the quarter of a century since the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) was enacted, attempts to involve descendant Native communities in research on and interpretation of archaeological resources have been met with limited success. Blurred lines delineating ancestral lands and migration routes across modern state boundaries, historical political alliances, and dynamic cultural identities often cause confusion and a defeatist attitude in approaching and working with...


Preparing for the Real World: How Fieldschools Can Teach Consultation with Interested Parties (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434974] Kristin E Swanton.

In 2010, Dr. Kevin McBride from the University of Connecticut conducted an archaeological fieldschool at various archaeological sites associated with the Pequot War, which took place from 1636-1638. News of the archaeological survey illicted many diverse responses from interested parties and community members. As a result, students participating in the field school benefited from the opportunity to interact with descendant communities, property owners, and other interested publics. This brief...


Preserving Our Past and Providing For Our Future: Heritage Management at Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation, Montana (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 403238] Kelsey Noack Myers.

Like all Tribal Historic Preservation Offices, our staff are required to wear many hats. The diversity of projects undertaken by the Chippewa Cree Cultural Resources Preservation Department (CCCRPD) includes on-reservation resource documentation and mitigation, educational programming for the local community, development of governmental agency policies and procedures, and consultation on repatriation and current archaeological and museum research. In addition, the CCCRPD has developed the...


Repatriation Collaborations Using 3D Technology: The Smithsonian-Tlingit Experience (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 402997] Eric Hollinger. Edwell John Jr.. Robert Starbard.

Smithsonian repatriation efforts have resulted in close consultation and collaboration with tribes and Alaskan Native communities that have enabled exploration of museum resources and shared interests taking the communities and the Institution far beyond what was envisioned by most when the repatriation legislation was first enacted. In particular, the Tlingit Dakhl'aweidi clan and the Hoonah Indian Association have worked with the National Museum of Natural History to pilot collaborations using...


We Travel Together: A New Archeology that Blends Western Science with Native American Perspectives and Values (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 428849] John Pryor.

After 45 years of doing archeology in both an academic and CRM context, I have come to the conclusion that archeology as I have been practicing it simply no longer works for me. For the last 15 years my archeology has been with and for Native Americans, and this collaboration has lead me to many wonderful insights and has enriched the archeology I have come to practice. This new approach is not a rejection of Western science but the blending of the best that we both have to offer. This new...


Where the Buffalo Still Roam: Archeology of a Buffalo Jump and Prehistoric Village Site at Wind Cave National Park (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 396366] Anne Vawser. Tim Schilling. Ashley Barnett. Allison Young. Michael Schumacher.

In 2011 Wind Cave National Park acquired new lands that include an important prehistoric site where American Indians once made their homes and practiced communal hunting. Two seasons of work at the site have resulted in the discovery of drive lines, rock cairns, processing areas, stone circles, ceremonial features and much more. What has been found at the site is equally as important as the way the work has been conducted, including the involvement of tribal monitors and volunteers, tribal...
