Representatives of 12 pueblos in Arizona and New Mexico gathered on Crow Canyon's campus for the Pueblo Indian Leadership Conference, a four-day meeting that focused on the problems and prospects of the modern pueblos.


Crow Canyon hosted a two-day meeting between staff members, Bureau of Land Management archaeologists, and American Indians representing tribal interests with regard to the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, or NAGPRA. (For more information about NAGPRA, see Archaeological Ethics and Law.

Pueblo Indians from Acoma, San Juan (Ohkay Owingeh), Santa Clara, Taos, Zia, and Zuni pueblos in New Mexico and from Hopi mesas in Arizona collaborated with Crow Canyon on the Sand Canyon Pueblo Interpretive Trail Project. Conducted in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management, the project involved documenting Pueblo perspectives on archaeological sites in the Mesa Verde region.
