This PTTGrants award funded an initial meeting of Native American and preservation experts to discuss preservation issues, and a subsequent workshop to design a preservation training program that meets the needs of Native Americans and archeologists.

A growing number of Native American tribes are establishing cultural preservation offices and museums. Among their responsibilities is preservation of archeological sites and artifacts.

The Crow Canyon Archaeological Center developed this workshop to train technicians and other tribal office and museum staff members in recording, cataloging, curation, and site preservation methods.
