On today's show, we talk about the horrors that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12, 2017. The question on everyone's minds was what to do about statues and iconography related to hate, bigotry, and a significant and changing period in our nation's history. How do we, as archaeologists deal with it?

We also discuss indigenous geography, the differences between working in Hawaii and Colorado, and her experiences doing ethnographic and tribal consultation work.
