Notes

Abstract:
This dissertation is a critical, multivocal ethnography of the politics of heritage management among Western Shoshone Indians on the Duckwater and Ely Shoshone Reservations in eastern Nevada. Heritage management is a complex body of federal law and policy that mandates the use of anthropology to evaluate the potential impacts of development projects on federal lands. Anthropology is in this way rendered a tool of governance, and that role needs to be carefully considered in historical and ethical context. In particular, I approach heritage management as an inevitably entangled tool of settler colonialism, as issues of heritage are predicated on issues of land and property. The way that heritage is constructed as an object of management does not articulate meaningfully with the ways that Western Shoshone communities understand, value, and define their own heritage through thought and action. For the dissertation, my primary goal was to try to understand Shoshone heritage on the communities own terms. By mapping out points of tension with the application of federal mandate, I consider the consequences that these disjunctures have on the future of Shoshone heritage. If we cannot improve this dialogue between Shoshones and federal agencies, anthropologys uses in this situation undermine its own ethical and theoretical aims.
