Natural Resource Management and Cultural Resources Education - 0 views

  •  
    This project represents an opportunity to enter into a cooperative agreement for cultural resources outreach, education and training to further effective cultural resource management on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Project lands. Stewardship of historic and cultural resources can be achieved by educating students, Corps staff, and public and private landowners holding outgrant leases, easements or licenses on USACE lands. A cooperative agreement with an educational institution will provide educational benefits and awareness to college students, interns, volunteers, neighbors, frequent users, the general public and future stewards of the sites, and provide benefits to the community of which these USACE sites are a part. The program would provide job training, education, and early career development for college-level students in archaeology, anthropology, and natural / cultural resource management. Students will learn appropriate survey and monitoring methods, field techniques, archival research, regulations and policy, and the latest technology to document and analyze cultural sites and historic properties.

BLM-(MT)- Crow Tribe Ecoregional Ethnographic Assessment - 0 views

  •  
    Five years ago, the BLM and Northern Cheyenne Tribe started an Ecoregional Ethnographic Assessment (EEA) project covering two ecoregions in Montana. The BLM would like to expand this project to cover most of the ecoregions in Montana. The BLM is seeking a partner who will have a close working relationship with the Tribal Elders, who hold and share their Traditional Cultural Knowledge for the Tribe. The recipient will use the template developed by the Northern Cheyenne for their EEA project. The BLM is interested in gaining more information from the Crow Tribe to use in management decisions for land use, enhancement and protection. The recipient will provide appropriate information to the BLM for use in planning, restoration, recovery of habitats for plant and animal species and possibly interpretation for the public. Objectives: To initiate a process to identify, document, evaluate, and map places of traditional religious or cultural significance to the Crow Tribe. In addition, the recipient will identify culturally important plant and animal species and their appropriate conservation elements; and assess the potential effects of identified change agents upon identified conservation elements.Public Benefit: This project will provide valuable information and will assist land managers to preserve and protect cultural and natural resources for the benefit of the general public, tribes and BLM. The ethnographic information on plants and the subsequent impacts, combined with scientific information, provide important insight to what is occurring on the landscape. The evidence provides a more holistic glimpse into the past, present and will help in developing a plan for the future.

Complete Portion of FLAG Museum Collection Condition Survey - 0 views

  •  
    The Flagstaff Area National Monumentsâ¿¿ (FLAG) museum collections include archeological, ethnological, artistic, and historical objects, natural history specimens, and archives from Sunset Crater Volcano, Walnut Canyon, and Wupatki National Monuments. The majority of the FLAG museum collections are at the Western Archeological and Conservation Center (WACC) in Tucson and the Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) in Flagstaff. A FLAG Museum Collection Condition Survey will take place at each repository to create an overarching Survey report which will be written by the WACC Senior Conservator; however, since the repository locations are over four (4) hours apart and staff at each repository are most familiar with the FLAG collections therein, work will be divided between WACC and MNA with location-specific personnel involved at their respective repositories.

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.

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.

Conduct Ethnographic Overview and Assessment (EOA) at the Flagstaff Area National Monum... - 0 views

  •  
    UA anthropologists will invite FLAGâ¿¿s thirteen traditionally associated tribes to SUCR, WACA, and WUPA, and interview tribal members about their traditional associations with FLAG landscapes, places and resources, including plants necessary for the continuation of traditional ceremonies. UA will employ a Graduate Research Assistant (.50 FTE ) for two academic years to work with Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Austin on the project. Research with participating tribes is targeted for spring break and summer so that the Graduate Research Assistant can help conduct the field work. It is anticipated that members of the Paiute Consortium and the Western Apache Working Group will conduct joint field work, so eight sessions of field work are budgeted. Each session will entail three days of work with tribal research participants, including travel to and from reservations.
