An Archaeological Curation-Needs Assessment for the Bureau of Indian Affairs

Summary

At the request of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), Washington, D.C., the US Army Corps of Engineers Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections (MCX-CMAC), located at the St. Louis District, conducted a survey of archaeological collections and associated documentation generated from archaeological investigations conducted within the boundaries of Indian reservations located in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.

Site visits were conducted during 1995 to assess the archaeological collections. In the aforementioned states, BIA is responsible for administering 47 reservations. Of these reservations, MCX-CMAC staff identified collections for 13, totaling over 458 cubic feet of artifacts and approximately 6 linear feet of associated documentation. All collections require at least partial rehabilitation to comply with federal regulation 36 CFR Part 79, Curation of Federally-Owned and Administered Archaeological Collections.
