This collaborative team of Indian scholars, archaeologists, ecologists, and land managers is embarking on an innovative research program with two primary goals. One is to examine Indian history in Quiroste Valley and to consider how it may have shaped historical developments in the broader region. The other is to undertake a comprehensive study of indigenous landscape management practices employed in the watershed through time.
