Native American partnerships with archaeologists have grown in number and importance since the passage of the Native American Grave Repatriation and Protection Act (NAGPRA). The Fish Lake archaeological project in central Utah established such a partnership in 1995, just a few years after the enactment of NAGPRA. Brigham Young University archaeologists and member of the Koosharem and Kanosh Bands of the Paiute Tribe of Utah joined forces to explore the pre-European history of this high altitude lake basin. This volume presents the history of that project, the results of the archaeological and ethnohistorical research, and interviews of Paiute tribal elders who present their thoughts on Fish Lake.
Joel C. Janetski is professor of anthropology at Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah. His publications include Indians of Yellowstone, The Ute of Utah Lake, and Hunter-Gatherer Archaeology in Utah Valley.
