Archaeological collaboration with traditional Pueblo communities faces many practical challenges. Archaeologists typically expect cultural practitioners to accept what archaeology entails as a scientific discipline and its approach to understanding the past. Within traditional Pueblo perspectives, archaeological excavation might not be an appropriate measure for mitigating adverse effects in the federal Section 106 compliance process. Rather than asserting the primacy of their preferences and values, archaeologists should be receptive to indigenous perceptions and attitudes about what archaeology is and what archaeology does. Hearing can facilitate the opening of communication avenues for cross-cultural explorations into the multiplicity of truths about the past.
