Ute Mountain Ute Tribal Historic Presevation Office Reflections on Tribal-Archaeologist Collaborations
This is an abstract from the "Braiding Knowledge: Opportunities and Challenges for Collaborative Approaches to Archaeological Heritage and Conservation" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
The Ute Mountain Ute Tribal Historic Preservation Office has worked regularly with archaeologists. While archaeology focuses largely on scientific understanding, the effects of this work on tribes and other stakeholders also needs to be considered. Through this talk, we highlight ways that archaeologists and tribes can more effectively collaborate and to find scientific inquiries of interest to both parties. Some important considerations include providing sufficient time for the tribe to consider the project and provide recommendations, bringing results back to the tribal community, not speaking for the tribal community, and respecting the sacred nature of many archaeology sites cultural landscapes. Such collaborations will deepen both relationships and understanding of the resulting data.
