Heritage Management Internships at the Grand Canyon

HERITAGE MANAGEMENT INTERNSHIPS at the GRAND CANYON. Summer 2018: May 8 - June 5. 

The extreme topography and resulting compacted ecology of the Grand Canyon in Northern Arizona provided Native Americans with a diverse environment and equally varied food sources. In a bid to maintain food sovereignity modern tribes, such as the Havasupai, Navajo, and Hopi, employ many of the sustainable agriculture and foraging strategies that their ancestors practiced for a thousand years. The purpose of this internship is to introduce students to the Native American agro-food systems utilized in the arid Southwestern United States, by identifying archaeological remains associated with agriculture and foodways, and by visiting modern Native American reservations to examine current strategies for ensuring food sovereignity.

Travel costs are partially underwritten by a Food Connection Student Opportunity Grant; students will only need to pay for food during the internship.

Once approved for the internship, students will register for 3 credit hours of ANT 399.

This unique opportunity is only available to a limited number of students. For more information or to discuss enrollment, please contact Dr. Philip B. Mink: pbmin2@uky.edu
