Poster Presents Multivocal Perspective of Goodman Point Unit

Crow Canyon Lithic Technology Analyst Fumi Arakawa and Director of American Indian Initiatives Marjorie Connolly traveled to New Orleans in November 2010 to attend the American Anthropological Association's annual meeting. At the meeting, they presented "Goodman Point Landscape: A Multivocal Perspective," a poster focusing on the history, both recent and ancient, of the Goodman Point Unit and the community that surrounds it. From 2005 through 2010, Crow Canyon conducted excavations at the Goodman Point Unit as part of the Goodman Point Archaeological Project.

"The poster was very well received," Margie said. "It attracted a lot of people, and many former Crow Canyon participants and former interns stopped by to talk with us. Several anthropology professors also asked us about our internship programs. The poster really helped to broadcast our internships."

The poster details how Crow Canyon—through contemporary perspectives and archaeological research—gained a better understanding of how diverse people used the Goodman Point landscape over time. Included on the poster is a discussion of how we involved Pueblo leaders and local residents in that effort, as well as a description of Crow Canyon's Goodman Point Archaeological Project. In addition, the poster included details about the Goodman Point Video Documentation Project, a multivocal history that documents the perspectives of multiple individuals involved in the archaeological project.

The American Anthropological Association, based in Arlington, Virginia, is the world's largest professional organization of anthropologists and others interested in anthropology, with an average annual membership of more than 10,000. The association represents all specialties within anthropology—cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, archaeology, linguistics, and applied anthropology.


Pictured above is a section of the poster representing the voices of archaeologists, Pueblo leaders, and Goodman Point–area residents.
