Online Webinar


The title of this talk shares a name with a chapter Lyle Balenquah wrote for a forthcoming volume about "Indigenous Archaeology." The volume should be available by August. Lyle’s webinar will focus on his experiences as an archaeologist involved in various projects dealing with repatriation, site conservation and Indigenous advocacy. 


Lyle Balenquah, Hopi, is a member of the Greasewood Clan from the Village of Paaqavi (“Reed Springs Place) on Third Mesa, located in northeastern Arizona. He currently works as an archaeologist, as well as a river and hiking guide across the Four Corners region. Through his work he advocates for the protection and preservation of ancestral landscapes, combining his professional training with personal experiences and insights about Hopi culture and history.
