Is 50 the New 25? The NHPA and the Southeast Archeological Center at 50: Reflections on Learning, Inclusion, and Stewardship

Author(s): Meredith Hardy

Year: 2016

Summary

Sharing a birth year with the NHPA, the National Park Service’s Southeast Archeological Center has served as steward to the cultural resources and archeological heritage for the national park units across the southeastern United States. For 50 years SEAC has overseen and conducted the majority of NHPA-related activities in these parks, provided training and education to both NPS staff and the public. This paper examines the roles SEAC has played in resource stewardship, protection, and education and how these roles have changed over time, reflecting a continuing maturation of understanding of significance, inclusion, and diversity of our nation’s heritage.
