The Heritage Stewardship Enhancement Program and Research Archaeology on the Dakota Prairie Grasslands, US Forest Service
The ongoing partnership between the Dakota Prairie Grasslands (DPG) and Southern Methodist University, supported by the US Forest Service Region 1 Heritage Stewardship Enhancement (HSE) program, is an investigation of the Paleoindian archaeological record of the Little Missouri National Grasslands. As hoped, this collaboration produced vital information about local Paleoindian prehistory. It has also been fruitful in other ways, including a few tough lessons learned along the way. Liv Fetterman discusses how the HSE program, the partnership, and results of this research provide some solutions to challenges DPG archaeologists face in the midst of an oil and gas boom, while Richard Anderson outlines the benefits of the collaboration for an aspiring archaeologist navigating graduate school. Both also comment on problems encountered through the process of creating and maintaining the partnership, and offer advice for others who may pursue such opportunities.
