The entrance of Native Americans into the world of cultural resource management is forcing a change in the traditional paradigms that have guided archaeologists, anthropologists, and other CRM professionals. This book examines these developments from tribal perspectives, and articulates native views on the identification of cultural resources, how they should be handled and by whom, and what their meaning is in contemporary life. Sponsored by the Heritage Resources Management Program, University of Nevada, Reno

Editorial Reviews

Claire Smith
Essential reading for archaeologists and others involved in the cultural heritage management of Indigenous sites.
Rhonda Foster
Stapp and Burney's Tribal Cultural Resource Management is a must for anyone who works in historic preservation and CRM! Each year I meet hundreds of students and countless agencies, and this book is the only one that provides a comprehensive background to anthropology and CRM from a tribal perspective. Understanding historic preservation through a tribal perspective has become a prerequisite for those that intend to work in cultural resource management; this book serves as an invaluable resource—a veritable CRM bible!
The Key Reporter, Winter 2004, Vol. 69, No.1 - Larry Zimmerman
[The authors] provide excellent coverage of the legal aspects of tribal sovereignty over cultural resources and Tribal Historic Preservation Officers...[this book is] a "must read" for archaeologists, but will also be fascinating to others concerned about cultural property rights and changes in Native American sovereignty.
Jeff Van Pelt
This book may be one of the most important books ever published on the subject of tribal cultural resources management. Friends like Darby and Michael have assisted us in coming back full-circle to place (sacred sites), to our original responsibilities to take care of the land and our cultural resources. For me, coming full-circle means coming together with the ones who were here before, to be one with the spirit, and the mind. For Indian people, this work feeds the spiritual part of the body. We understand the knowledge of our past generations, and through those who were here before we know our purpose. Our purpose is to make decisions that will bring us (all of us) better water, air, and a better way of life. This book will surely be a guide for cultural resources managers and the future of archaeology.
