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.

The 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 initiate a dialogue on issues of controversy.
