Stapp and Burney's Tribal Cultural Resource Management is a must for anyone who works in historic preservation and CRM! Each year I meet hundreds of students and countless agencies, and this book is the only one that provides a comprehensive background to anthropology and CRM from a tribal perspective. Understanding historic preservation through a tribal perspective has become a prerequisite for those that intend to work in cultural resource management; this book serves as an invaluable resource-a veritable CRM bible! -- Rhonda Foster, Cultural Resource Director for Squaxin Island Tribe, Tribal Historic Preservation Officer
[The authors] provide excellent coverage of the legal aspects of tribal sovereignty over cultural resources and Tribal Historic Preservation Officers...[this book is] a "must read" for archaeologists, but will also be fascinating to others concerned about cultural property rights and changes in Native American sovereignty. -- Larry J. Zimmerman, Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis * Key Reporter, Winter 2004, Vol. 69, No.1 *
This book may be one of the most important books ever published on the subject of tribal cultural resources management. Friends like Darby and Michael have assisted us in coming back full-circle to place (sacred sites), to our original responsibilities to take care of the land and our cultural resources. For me, coming full-circle means coming together with the ones who were here before, to be one with the spirit, and the mind. For Indian people, this work feeds the spiritual part of the body. We understand the knowledge of our past generations, and through those who were here before we know our purpose. Our purpose is to make decisions that will bring us (all of us) better water, air, and a better way of life. This book will surely be a guide for cultural resources managers and the future of archaeology. -- Jeff Van Pelt, Cultural Resources Protection Program, Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation
