Funding Opportunity Description: The Pueblo of Zuni considers ancestral archaeological sites to be traditional cultural properties (TCPs) because these sites are tangible monuments validating Zuni emergence and migrations, which play a fundamental role in sustaining Zuni individual and collective cultural identities. The Pueblo of Zuni also asserts that archaeological sites are eligible to the National Register of Historic Places. The purpose of this project is: 1. Mitigate, in part, the adverse effects caused by operations of the Glen Canyon Dam on those characteristics that make up the Zuni ancestral sites. 2. Document the importance of the Grand Canyon, the Colorado and Little Colorado Rivers, and the Zuni ancestral sites from a Zuni tribal perspective. 3. Create a documentary film to be used as educational material in the Zuni school systems, for the general Zuni public, and stakeholder participants in the Glen Canyon Dam Adaptive Management Program (GCDAMP).
