Data Recording Strategies for Nuvakwewtaqa Repatriation

Author(s): Nathan Wilson

Year: 2015


This poster presents a discussion of the various data recording methods implemented in the NAGPRA Repatriation of materials from Nuvakwewtaqa, Chavez Pass, Arizona. A number of different artifact types were analyzed in processing this collection, and artifact analysis associated with this project used a multi-stage approach. As this analysis required data recording following each stage, a well-organized, comprehensive multi-stage data recording strategy was constructed. This strategy, including extensive photography and comprehensive data entry, necessitated a continuous interplay with artifact analysis. Protocols for each stage of data recording will be presented, discussed, and evaluated.
