Summary

In response to ever-growing threats to intangible and tangible cultural heritage in the region, the Anthropology Department of the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Campinas, Brazil, organized and held the inaugural meeting of the Inter-American and Caribbean Cultural Heritage Working Group on August 11–12, 2015, at UNICAMP. The goal is to establish a permanent collaborative forum to explore ways to improve anthropological practical and theoretical approaches to cultural heritage issues. Representatives from major anthropological and archaeological associations based in the Americas and the Caribbean, the UNICAMP Anthropology Department, and interested individuals discussed how anthropologists should engage with these issues to foster outcomes in the best interest of society. The group drafted a declaration on the need to protect and safeguard cultural heritage in the Americas and the Caribbean and stressed the need for improvements in the theoretical and practical approaches used to develop community-based investigations about and interpretations of cultural heritage. The declaration is expected to foster increased discussion and collaboration on cultural heritage studies.
