The WAC--archaeology as usual?


The WAC--archaeology as usual?
state senate hearings, NAGPRA & UCB

A document submitted to the State of California hearings by Sandra Harris, Vice-Director of the Hearst Museum of Anthropology. (Click on it to see a full, readable image.) While the WAC (World Archaeology Congress) says it has special interest in protecting "the cultural heritage of Indigenous peoples", one wonders if they sent similar messages to other stakeholders? If so, who?Also, one has to ask why the Vice-Director is reading the Director's email and submitting it as evidence?
