Accessing Archaeology: A Conversation on Indigenous Knowledge and Heritage
Join the Department of Anthropology and Anthropology Club for a Smithsonian webcast screening.
Archaeology lets us explore what it means to be human, but the field is shaped by those who participate in it and the knowledge systems they prioritize. This 90-minute panel discussion will highlight the importance of recognizing and including Indigenous traditional knowledge and perspectives as five Native American archaeologists share their experiences and challenges in a field created by colonizers.
