9780465092253: Skull Wars: Kennewick Man, Archaeology, And The Battle For Native American Identity

The 1996 discovery, near Kennewick, Washington, of a 9,000-year-old Caucasoid skeleton brought more to the surface than bones. The explosive controversy and resulting lawsuit also raised a far more fundamental question: Who owns history? Many Indians see archeologists as desecrators of tribal rites and traditions; archeologists see their livelihoods and science threatened by the 1990 Federal reparation law, which gives tribes control over remains in their traditional territories.In this new work, Thomas charts the riveting story of this lawsuit, the archeologists’ deteriorating relations with American Indians, and the rise of scientific archeology. His telling of the tale gains extra credence from his own reputation as a leader in building cooperation between the two sides.

Review:

Since its discovery in 1996, the issues surrounding Kennewick Man have grown ever more complicated and controversial. Out of this fracas comes Skull Wars, David Hurst Thomas's masterful contribution to the debate. The book is sure to stir passions even as it seeks to offer a better way for archeologists, anthropologists, and Native Americans to work together in the future. When it was determined that Kennewick Man, a skeleton with Caucasoid features discovered near Kennewick, Washington, was estimated to be more than 9,000 years old, it effectively lobbed a grenade into the already tense arena of the origins of the pre-Columbus peoples of the United States. Thomas, curator of anthropology at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, leads the reader through the development of American anthropology and archeology, the many reinterpretations of Native Americans by non-Indians, an assertion of native rights, and the eventual intercession of the federal government, ironically, as protective party. Skull Wars is a gripping account of the way race, scientific practice, history, and politics converged around an ancient skeleton. --Julia Riches

Book Description Basic Books, 2001. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The 1996 discovery, near Kennewick, Washington, of a 9,000-year-old Caucasoid skeleton brought to a boil long-building tensions between Native Americans and the archeological community. Besides raising profound scientific questions, the explosive controversy and resulting lawsuit over Kennewick Man uncovered deeply held grievances of both sides. Indians felt that archaeologists were systematically taking their history, traditions, and tribal identities away from them and reinterpreting them in the context of Western science.Archaeologists, seeing remains and artifacts removed from museum for reburial, and their access to new sites closed, feared for the future of their science.Skull Wars tells, for the first time, the riveting story of archaeologists' relations with American Indians and how they deteriorated with the rise of scientific archaeology.
