Tribal Connections to the Monticello Field Office

Author(s): Jessica Yaquinto; Kathleen Van Vlack

Year: 2018


The BLM Utah Monticello Field Office (MFO) selected Living Heritage Anthropology (LHA) to document tribes' connections to and ethnographic resources within their field office. The MFO is located in southeastern Utah and includes much of the greater Cedar Mesa area. In order to achieve this goal, LHA is currently conducting an ethnographic literature review of tribal perspectives of and connections to the MFO. As part of this process, with the field office, LHA has been initiating conversations with 32 tribes likely to have traditional connections to the area, as well contacting institutions and researchers about pre-existing resources within their collections. This talk will highlight initial project findings and tribal perspectives on southeastern Utah.
