The 32nd Annual Chacmool Conference, Indigenous People and Archaeology: Honoring the Past, Discussing the Present, Building for the Future, will be held at the University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Currently there is a trend in archaeology in which traditional schools of thought concerning the past are being augmented and adjusted as a result of increased exchanges with indigenous people. Interaction between indigenous people and archaeologists has increased markedly as a result of the increased political presence of the former, the rise of postprocessional archaeology, and an increasing interest in the past and the role of archaeology in land claims. The purpose of this conference is to share information on mutual benefits and to open a dialogue on issues of controversy.
