When Indigenous groups are denied direct and meaningful engagement in decision-making, heritage management policies are ineffective at best and harmful at worst, according to scholar George Nicholas. Nicholas, professor of archaeology at Simon Fraser University in Canada, will deliver a lecture on this topic titled "Activism, Education, and the Protection of Indigenous Heritage," hosted by the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology. Nicholas' talk will lead into a discussion about opportunities for navigating through heritage research and management. Made possible by the Shepard Krech III Lecture fund, the event begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Salomon Center for Teaching, Room 001, the College Green.
