Indigenous Public Archaeology: A Multi-cultural Landscape Approach to the Central Mesa Verde Region
Author(s): Sean Gantt
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
In this presentation I will discuss plans to diversify the Public Anthropology program offerings through the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center to include more accessible and relevant content for local Native American youth. I plan to utilize a "multi-cultural landscape approach" to the interpretation of the Central Mesa Verde Region which will include not only Pueblo history, but also Diné (Navajo), Ute, and settler understandings of this landscape. It is important that we not only tell the story of western archaeological research in this area, but that we include Native American understandings and interpretations of this landscape on an equal footing.
