About this course:

This course explores the topic of tribal cultural resource protection and management with emphasis on the challenges faced by tribal peoples from the lands now known as California. Indigenous people in the United States have been struggling to protect resources and places with tribal cultural value from exploitation and destruction since the launch of western expansion into this continent. The course examines the significance, importance, and protection of tangible cultural resources, including sacred places. It will explore the resources in connection with indigenous life ways and identity as well as from the perspective of other interested and invested parties, including western perspectives on resource treatment and management. The course will include a survey of the archaeological, political and legal institutions and systems that address and influence tribal cultural resources. It will explore the practical and academic methods available to protect and manage the resources with an emphasis on understanding culturally appropriate methods of treatment.
