"This book asks an important question: why are so many indigenous peoples excluded from resource management in their homelands, where their knowledge would be vital? The book's core consists of four very incisive case studies that provide straightforward accounts of collaborative efforts to forge stewardship, but not without frequent conflict and intercultural misunderstandings. This book contains an important message that shines through. Summing Up: Recommended.

"This edited volume contains contributions from throughout Latin America that center around the emerging dialogue between indigenous peoples and archaeologists. The book represents a significant contribution to the discipline-wide conversation about the development and direction of indigenous archaeology. Because the authors draw from their experience in Latin America, the volume also provides instructive examples of different approaches to crafting productive collaborative relationships between archaeologists and indigenous peoples…this book [is] an important resource for academic library collections in archaeology, indigenous archaeology, public archaeology, and cultural resource management. Summing Up: Highly recommended. "
