The stereotype of the archeologist, the white guy in khaki, is quickly fading. "Being and Becoming Indigenous Archaeologists" is a collection of tales from those peoples who have taken up the discipline of archeology studying the land that's under them that the western world seeks history from. 36 individuals speak out, on dealing with views from their own people, which has written archaeology as a colonialist profession. Granting a unique international perspective of the practice of archeology, "Being and becoming Indigenous Archaeologists" is a strong addition to any community library collection that tackles social issues or archeology itself.
