Indigenous Rights and Archaeology


Adopting an Indigenous rights perspective, this chapter discusses the legal issues that surround the relationship between Native Americans and archaeologists concerning the appropriate treatment of Native American human remains and ancestral sites, and explains how those issues are interpreted by Native Americans. This chapter was included in Native Americans and Archaeologists: Steeping stones to common ground by editors Nina Swidler, Kurt Dongoske, Roger Anyon, Alan Downer, and Society of American Archaeology
