SHPOs, Tribal Consultation, and Collaboration - Heritage Voices 5

Today we are speaking with Colorado Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) and State Archaeologist, Dr. Holly Norton. We talk through the role of the SHPO, SHPO resources, the different stakeholders in Colorado, and the collaborative museum exhibits that History Colorado has been undertaking. We also talk about Holly’s dissertation on a 1733 slave rebellion in the US Virgin Islands, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, the Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs, and the disparity in funding between SHPOs and THPOs (Tribal Historic Preservation Officers). Holly and I had way too much fun recording this episode, so even with lots of cuts it is still longer than our normal episodes. Hope you enjoy as much as we did!
