Thank you for your support during our year-end campaign to help us explore and protect heritage places while honoring their diverse values.
Paul Reed: "After so many years of effort from the Pueblos and their allies, we are gratified by President Biden and Secretary Haaland’s announcement today to withdraw public lands around Chaco Canyon from future oil and gas leasing."
Doelle: “[A] concrete demonstration of the Biden Administration’s stated commitment to listen to Tribes, respect ancestral lands, preserve heritage, & be guided by science.”
Archaeology Southwest seeks an individual with proven success in building meaningful and powerful collaborative relationships with Native American Tribes and Nations.
Archaeology Southwest has released a new paper on the impact of the federal government’s broken oil and gas system on the West’s irreplaceable cultural resources and sacred sites.
For three decades, Archaeology Southwest has practiced a holistic, conservation-based approach to exploring the places of the past. We call this Preservation Archaeology. By exploring what makes a place special, sharing this knowledge in innovative ways, and enacting flexible site protection strategies, we foster meaningful connections to the past and respectfully safeguard its irreplaceable resources.
Respect the Land You Stand Upon

All speak to the very real toll ARC takes on Tribal communities.View Highlights
