Cultural resources management at the Pueblo of Zuni, New Mexico, USA

  • Roger Anyon (a1) and T. J. Ferguson (a2)

As once-colonial countries recognize the special claim of indigenous peoples to their own history, so archaeology is becoming more a partnership between researcher and community. The next step, of indigenous people directing their own archaeology, was taken long ago by the Zuni peopel of New Mexico, in a programme that is an example and model for others. The authors have worked in the Zuni programmes for over 15 years.
