Description: This project will develop an Ethnographic Overview and Assessment (EOA) baseline cultural anthropological study which aims to document traditional associations between distinct cultural communities and landscapes, places or resources. In partnering with traditionally associated tribes and distinct cultural communities, this project will identify and provide descriptions of resources and sites of cultural importance within Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, from the perspective of the associated groups themselves. A key goal of this project will be to provide baseline ethnographic documentation in a manner that is accessible to park staff and visitors, researchers and managers, interpreters and educators. To date, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument has never conducted an EOA. Ethnographic research is essential to preserve, manage and interpret Florissant Fossil Beds National Monumentâ¿¿s cultural and natural resources in an effective, culturally informed manner. This project will identify and document culturally significant resources and contribute to the development and implementation of culturally appropriate resource management strategies at Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument. An EOA will allow park staff to make informed evaluations of requests for access to culturally significant resources, to identify ethnographic resources that require special treatment, and to assess potential impacts on these resources. This project will also help to identify places within or near parks that may meet eligibility requirements to be listed with the National Register of Historic Places as Traditional Cultural Properties (TCPs), and can be used to improve or augment park interpretive programs. Project methods will include review and analysis of existing historical and ethnographic literature and archival documentation, and extensive fieldwork including participant observation and interviews with traditionally associated tribes and distinct cultural communities.
