Today’s episode features Emily Van Alst, Sihasapa Lakota descent, talking about indigenous and community based archaeology in Japan, Peru, Spain, and Alaska. She also talks about NAGPRA from museum, international, and indigenous perspectives. Finally we talk about how archaeology can be used to benefit indigenous communities and vice versa. Emily specifically discusses zooarchaeology and rock art as areas that are fruitful for indigenous archaeology, especially in the work she would like to pursue in the Northern Plains in her upcoming PhD program at Indiana University where she will be working with Learning NAGPRA.
