Community Accountable & Low Impact Archaeology
My research in the Bear Bones Lab focuses on collaborative archaeology that is stake-holder accountable with an emphasis in low impact remote sensing techniques that support community goals. Low impact methodologies are a high priority to many communities, particularly indigenous groups, these technologies allow them to have more control over their heritage. Archaeology has been a tool of colonialism, but through collaboration with indigenous groups we use it as a tool of social justice. I will continue to research remote sensing methodologies and engage with our tribal partners over Summer.
