Cultural Anthropology Program - Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants | NSF... - 0 views

  •  
    Anthropological research spans a wide gamut, and contemporary cultural anthropology is an arena in which diverse research traditions and methodologies are valid. Recognizing the breadth of the field's contributions to science, the Cultural Anthropology Program welcomes proposals for empirically grounded, theoretically engaged, and methodologically sophisticated research in all sub-fields of cultural anthropology. Because the National Science Foundation's mandate is to support basic research, the NSF Cultural Anthropology Program does not fund research that takes as its primary goal improved clinical practice or applied policy. A proposal that uses anthropological methods to understand a social problem but does not propose to make a theory-testing and/or theory expanding contribution to anthropology will be returned without review.

BLM-(MT), Traditional Properties and Sacred Site Identification - 0 views

  •  
    Background: Native American Tribes have specific cultural and religious ties to the land and landscapes. In Montana and North and South Dakota that means that much of the physical environment has meaning and significance to tribes. BLM manages and authorizes activities on this landscape. To understand the tribal specific ties to the land it is important to understand the significance of the landscape to tribes including where Sacred sites and Traditional Cultural Properties (TCPs) are located. The proposed program in the Spring Creek area will address this need and will provide a mechanism to rediscover sites of religious and cultural importance to tribes. Objectives: Facilitate Identification of TCPs and Sacred Sites important to the tribes. The recipient will conduct field work and record historic properties to assist with special expertise to help recognize and evaluate eligibility of sites, especially TCPs or Sacred sites for areas in their Aboriginal Territories beginning with the Spring Creek area which will be 1350 acres. The information will be invaluable to determine significance of sites and for tribes to re-establish connections to places they have heard about in their oral tradition. This information also contributes to our knowledge of our National Heritage. The information will provide background and holistic use information for future management of public lands. Public Benefit: These potential TCPs and Sacred sites are important because they give us a more complete picture of our National Heritage. The project will benefit the general public, by giving the tribes the chance to share important cultural information to assist in better management of important sites and areas on the landscape and a contribution to our National Heritage. These sites are irreplaceable.

Ethnographic Overview and Assessment for Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument - 0 views

  •  
    This project will develop an Ethnographic Overview and Assessment (EOA) baseline cultural anthropological study which aims to document traditional associations between distinct cultural communities and landscapes, places or resources. In partnering with traditionally associated tribes and distinct cultural communities, this project will identify and provide descriptions of resources and sites of cultural importance within Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, from the perspective of the associated groups themselves. A key goal of this project will be to provide baseline ethnographic documentation in a manner that is accessible to park staff and visitors, researchers and managers, interpreters and educators. To date, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument has never conducted an EOA. Ethnographic research is essential to preserve, manage and interpret Florissant Fossil Beds National Monumentâ¿¿s cultural and natural resources in an effective, culturally informed manner. This project will identify and document culturally significant resources and contribute to the development and implementation of culturally appropriate resource management strategies at Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument.

Bandelier Archeological Inventory, 2016-2020 MOD - 0 views

  •  
    Bandelier National Monument seeks to cooperatively inventory remaining areas of backcountry lands that are likely to contain cultural resources. Almost 98% of all park lands have been inventoried for cultural resources. Six hundred and fifteen (615) acres remain to be inventoried. An estimated 75-90 archaeological sites are located within the remaining survey units. The objective of the inventory is to locate cultural resources within the project areas using systematic pedestrian survey methods and to document resources according to established park guidelines. The methods employed during the inventory will closely match those of the Bandelier Archaeological Survey (⿿BAS⿝; Powers and Orcutt 1999) in so far as to create comparable data, with some important exceptions, as noted below. The inventory will be accomplished using the established safety plan, which will include job hazard analyses.

Paleo Indian Assessment of the Lakes and Prehistoric Wetlands - 0 views

  •  
    Know Paleo Indian cultural sites are located along the western edge of White Sands National Monument (WHSA) overlooking the Lake Lucero and Alkali Flats, within the deposits of Pleistocene Lake Otero. Sites have also been found along the eastern margins of the monument following prehistoric drainages. Although direct correlation has not been confirmed many of the sites are adjacent to Pleistocene megafauna trackways. Despite its great research potential, its spatial extent has not been completely documented, nor have all of its cultural features been fully recognized. Recent reconnaissance surveys have found a strong correlation with the prehistoric lake shores; across the basin similar discoveries have been made. The focus of this project is to correct baseline data to develop a nomination and management plan if warranted.

Notice of Intent: Backcountry Preservation Plan, Casa Grande Ruins National Monument - 0 views

  •  
    This cooperative project in Casa Grande Ruins National Monument has two primary objectives. First, to develop a baseline Preservation Plan for 60 archaeological sites including 59 backcountry sites and the standing architecture of Compound A, a front-country site that addresses deferred maintenance of delicate adobe surfaces dating to A.D.1350. Second, to develop and implement Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Treatment Recommendations for the 59 backcountry sites identified through recent condition assessments. The University of Arizona (UA) team will work with CAGR preservation staff to maintain the backfill levels at five identified archeological sites; backfilling preservation treatments will be focused at four (the Ballcourt, B, C, and G) of the 59 backcountry Maintained Archeological Sites and Compound A. Additional preservation treatments will address IPM needs and the development of rills and gullies as a result of water flowing over surfaces as identified at 54 backcountry archeological sites. Pest impacts and surface erosion are the biggest threats to backcountry cultural resources at Casa Grande Ruins.
