Many Pathways to Stewardship of Oklahoma's Past and Present


True to the title of the 2017 Oklahoma Archaeology Month poster, its creation involved an extensive collaborative effort. The theme celebrates both the long-standing education and outreach efforts of the Oklahoma Archeological Survey and the founding of the Oklahoma Public Archaeology Network (OKPAN). OKPAN sponsored the competitive recruitment for an artist to conceive the poster, which generated multiple submissions and spawned other creative partnerships. The poster displays an original, innovative design that incorporates multimedia content contributed by American Indian nations, state and federal agencies, professional archaeologists, land owners, and avocationals. With images from over 20 federally recognized Tribes, the contributions provided by indigenous communities represent a particularly poignant example of the poster’s message of inclusive archaeology. The authors emerged from this process feeling like we had been part of a unique experience worth sharing with others—thus the impetus for this presentation.
