Cross-Cultural Collaboration is an anthology of essays on Native American involvement in archaeology in the northeastern United States and on the changing relationship between archaeologists and tribes in the region. The contributors examine the process and the details of collaborative case studies, ranging from consultation in compliance with federal, state, and local legislation and regulations (including the National Historic Preservation Act and the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act) to voluntary cooperation involving education, research, and museum-related projects. They also discuss the ethical, theoretical, and practical importance of collaboration; the benefits and the pitfalls of such efforts; ways the process might be improved; and steps to achieve effective collaboration.

Cross-Cultural Collaboration is distinctive in its extensive regional coverage of the topic and its strong representation of Native American voices from the Northeast. It also provides a comparative framework for addressing and evaluating an increasing number of collaborative case studies elsewhere.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Given the rise of community consultation and collaboration in museums and other settings, this book is an important resource for anyone embarking on or involved in such work. . . . The essays themselves provide a mix of voices: some are openly collaborative and others offer a point-counterpoint of Native and non-Native perspectives within a single chapter. Many candidly discuss misunderstandings, missteps, and that the resolution of some situations may sometimes by only to "agree to disagree," thus providing readers with real-life examples of how consultations and collaborations can go wrong and how problems may be avoided or resolved."-Museum Anthropology Review * Museum Anthropology Review *
"Because of its realistic and inclusive tone, Cross-Cultural Collaboration ultimately presents the reader with a balanced and helpful view that is at the same time both sobering and optimistic."-Jon Daehnke, Collaborative Anthropologies -- Jon Daehnke * Collaborative Anthropologies *
