"Archaeology and Accountability" on Native America Calling

Jim Enote, one of our project collaborators at the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center was featured on the call-in radio program Native America Calling several days ago. From their website:

Archaeology and Accountability:
Archaeology, ethics and Native Americans have never quite seen eye-to-eye. But this trio may be forging a less antagonistic approach towards one another these days. Ancient Indian artifacts are still hot selling items and ancient Indian burial grounds and graves are still being robbed. But the archaeological field is showing signs of a willingness to collaborate in new and more ethical ways when it comes to Native views and beliefs. Is archaeology ready to be accountable to Native folks? Guests include Jim Enote (Zuni) Director/A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Janine Bowechop (Makah) Director/Makah Cultural and Research Center."
