Summary

After 45 years of doing archeology in both an academic and CRM context, I have come to the conclusion that archeology as I have been practicing it simply no longer works for me. For the last 15 years my archeology has been with and for Native Americans, and this collaboration has lead me to many wonderful insights and has enriched the archeology I have come to practice. This new approach is not a rejection of Western science but the blending of the best that we both have to offer. This new approach must be an equal partnership based on respect from both sides. To create this new archeology will perhaps be a long journey, but one we must travel together – Native Americans and archeologists.
