Summary

The Arizona Archaeological Council received funding from the NCPTT during its inaugural granting cycle to conduct a two day training workshop between Native Americans and archaeologists. The goal of the workshop was to promote a productive dialogue between Native Americans, Federal agency archaeologists, academic archaeologists, and archaeologists from the contracting community. Three issues were the focus of that workshop: consultation, oral tradition and archaeological interpretation, and Native Americans’ role in archaeology. This presentation reviews the proceedings and the products of that workshop followed by an evaluation of the current condition of the relationship between Native Americans and archaeologists and what progress, if any, has been made in the twenty years since that workshop.
