Inheriting the Past: Arthur C. Parker and the Making of Archaeology's Moral Community

Arthur C. Parker (1881-1955) was the first Native American professional archaeologist, although his contributions to archaeology have been neither closely studied nor widely recognized. And yet, Parker’s experiences directly inform contemporary debates about the control and representation of Native American archaeological heritages--heated debates over the last two decades about questions of privilege, ownership, authorship, and participation. An interdisciplinary study of archaeology’s historical formation through the prism of Parker’s life, this work illuminates how the difficult choices scholars made more than a century ago built a community of archaeologists which continues to shape the discipline today.
