Date:
Tuesday, November 16, 2021
Time:
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Event Type:
Speaker
Organizer/Author:
Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History
Location Details:

Archaeologists can analyze charred seeds and other plant remains to learn about relationships between people and the natural world deep into the past.

This talk will describe how a collaborative research project between Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, State Parks, and academic researchers utilized this type of information to explore how Indigenous peoples on the coast of San Mateo and Santa Cruz Counties used prescribed burning to steward local landscapes. Guided by these findings, Amah Mutsun Land Trust is working to revitalize Indigenous-based stewardship of open spaces today.

Rob Cuthrell is a researcher in archaeology and historical ecology who has studied relationships between Indigenous people and landscapes west of the Santa Cruz Mountains for over a decade. Currently, Rob works as a consultant for Amah Mutsun Land Trust managing a native plant propagation and restoration project on Año Nuevo Point.
