natamroundtable2016The Archaeology Club and Archaeology Program are pleased to announce an upcoming roundtable discussion:

Friday, December 2, 4:30 – 6:00, EHHP Alumni Center.
“Cultural Heritage in the Age of Dirty Oil: Indigenous and Archaeological Concerns”. Free and open to the public.

 

Recent events in the Dakotas highlight the delicate balance between the desires for development and the needs for cultural and environmental protection. Often viewed as diametrically opposed forces, this need not always be the case. The evening’s discussion will focus upon recent conflicts in environmental and cultural heritage management as a way to see if and how greater dialogue and procedural reform can create a system built upon a shared notion of sustainable development.

 

Panelists will feature:

Dr. Eric Poplin, an archaeologist in Cultural Resource Management from Brockington and Associates,

Ms. Lisa Collins, the tribal administrator from the Wassamasaw Tribe of Varnertown Indians
