Trival Views of History, Anthropology and Archaeology.jpg

On March 3rd, 2018 Lyle hosted a live panel on Bears Ears National Monument with indigenous activists at Friends of Cedar Mesa’s annual Celebrate Cedar Mesa event. In addition to Lyle himself, the panel also featured Regina Lopez-Whiteskunk (former co-chair of the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition and Ute Mountain Ute Tribal Councilwoman and current Education Coordinator for the Ute Indian Museum), Ed Kabotie (Hopi/Tewa artist, musician, and activist) and Angelo Baca (Diné/Hopi, Filmmaker and Cultural Resources Coordinator for Utah Diné Bikeyah). The four talk about their experiences with Bears Ears National Monument, but also use the topic to discuss larger issues, including tribal sovereignty, indigenous and Western science collaborations, boarding schools, and how we can all be better activists. Their heartfelt words led to a standing ovation and an encore. Thank you again to Friends of Cedar Mesa and to all the panelists.

The time of the Indian expert is over. It’s time for expert Indians.

California State and Local Tribal Consultation Law - HV 7

Today’s episode features Michelle La Pena, an attorney, writer, mother, and former Pit River tribal councilwoman who advocated for and collaboratively developed some of California’s local and state tribal consultation laws. We talk about why these laws were designed the way they were, as well as what she would like to see in our federal cultural resources, tribal consultation, and environmental laws. Some specific aspects discussed include building trust in consultation, confidentiality, how a tribe is defined, burials, outreach, and the power of a tribe to affect an outcome. We also discuss the Dakota Access pipeline, specific challenges for tribes in California and the mission system, gaming and compacts, and the effect of the Trump administration on cultural resource management laws and practice.
