In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Acknowledgments I owe my biggest debt to those who invited me onto their traditional territories , lands, and/or Country. This book would not have been possible without their permission and their generosity of time and spirit. A number of institutions provided financial or logistical support, including the Ethnic Studies and Anthropology Departments at the University of Oregon, the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Stanford University, and the Alaska Native Heritage Center in Anchorage. In addition to the agency grants listed below, research was supported by the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, the National Science Foundation, and the Oregon Humanities Center. I am especially thankful to the Stanford Archaeology Center , Department of Anthropology, and the Woods Institute for the Environment, where I had the good fortune to be a postdoctoral research fellow from 2011 to 2013. I am grateful to Barton “Buzz” Thompson and Jeff Koseff of the Woods Institute for their generosity and insights. I am indebted to Lynn Meskell, a mentor and friend, who sets an example of integrity and excellence. I know this work is better because of her and my time at Stanford. I must acknowledge all the people who have encouraged me and/or took time to provide advice, papers, and ideas: Jon Altman, Nicole Ardoin, Doug Bird, Aletta Biersack, Molly Casperson, Douglas Comer, Julie Cruikshank, Marguerite Deloney, Jen Erikson, Rachelle Gould, Valdimar Hafstein, Rodney Harrison , Ian Lilley, Arek Marciniak, Madonna Moss, Stratos Nanoglou, George Nicholas, Emma Norman, Þóra Pétursdóttir, Trinidad Rico, Kathryn Lafrenz Samuels, Sandra Scham, Phil Scher, Helaine Silverman, Laurajane Smith, Peter Vitousek, Ana Vrdoljak, the late Willem Willems, and Lauren Yapp. I owe an enormous intellectual debt to my friend and “roomie,” Lindsay Weiss, whose ideas are found in this book. I have also benefited from conversations and collaborations with Rosemary Coombe. Of course, I am responsible for any errors or oversights in this work. My work has been generously supported by a number of institutions and agencies. The National Park Service and the U.S.D.A. Forest Service supported research in Alaska from 2000 to 2005. I am grateful to Jeanne Schaaf, Terry Fifield, and Linda Yarborough for their support. Research in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve was conducted under a Cooperative Agreement (1443CA991001058). Research in Prince William Sound was supported by the U.S.D.A. Chugach National Forest in consultation with John F. C. Johnson, cultural resources manager, Chugach Alaska Corporation.

I am also deeply honored that the late Frederica de Laguna took the time to meet with me in 2002 and encouraged me to pursue my field research in Prince William Sound. Research in Mongolia in 2006 was supported by Esther Jacobson-Tepfer. Thank-you also to Jean Bourgeois and the UNESCO WH Centre for funding my participation in the 2006 International Conference on Scythian Archaeology in Ghent and to Wouter Gheyle, Henri Francfort, and Herman Parzinger.

Research in Australia was supported by the Stanford Archaeology Center and Woods Institute for the Environment, two Research Excellence Fund grants and startup funds from Michigan Technological University. In Australia, a number of agencies provided material and logistical support, and people provided interviews and advice. Because of the sensitivity of some of this research, I have chosen to protect participants’ anonymity. A few people I can mention here include: Mayor Peter Long, Chevron Onslow Community Liaison Officer, Jan Virgo and the Dampier Community Association, John Lally, the Aboriginal Rangers at Karijini and Murujuga national parks, Ron Critchley, CEO of Murujuga Park Council, Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation, Ngarluma Aboriginal Corporation, the Ngarluma people, Skipper Brad Beaumont, Shire of Ashburton , Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation/ Banjima Traditional Owners.
