This is the 12th annual Cultural Resource Protection Summit. Since its inception, the primary goal in organizing the annual Summit has been to facilitate amongst all affected parties an open, frank discussion about the intersection between cultural resources and land use. The Summit is designed to promote collaborative cultural resource planning as an effective means of finding resolution to issues before they escalate into emotionally-charged, divisive, and expensive stalemates or law suits.
This year, the Summit agenda includes an engaging array of cutting-edge topics that will encourage attendees to examine the various values ascribed to cultural resources and how value-based perspectives might influence solutions for today’s most pressing challenges to effective cultural resource protection. Keynotes, panel discussions, “lightning” talks, small group discussions, and an interactive walk-about will highlight useful examples of the links between value-based CRM and responsible land use. We will also reserve plenty of time to eat well and socialize!
Please join us at the Suquamish Tribe’s beautiful and inviting House of Awakened Culture for a two-day gathering that will help you improve your technical skills while deepening your connection to why we do this work. Leave with more tools for protecting cultural resources and sharing the important stories they tell, not to mention new allies and friends.
