Archaeologists have long focused on developing better approaches to the methodology and interpretive frameworks of our discipline. Like archaeological communities across the country, Arizona archaeologists have strived to be at the forefront of such advances. Considering recent calls for increased focus on ethical approaches to archaeology and the protection and preservation of cultural resources in a multi-perspective and inclusive space, Arizona archaeology is primed to remain at the forefront of practice and industry. Addressing issues of sexual harassment, racial and social injustice, and gender equality as well as confronting our colonial legacy as a discipline is vital to contemporary practices and training. In addition, rising curation costs have encouraged practitioners to consider how to preserve Arizona’s cultural resources more efficiently without impeding development or sacrificing quality (e.g., fieldwork, artifact and data collection, respect for descendant communities). This year’s conference theme seeks to address these issues head-on to encourage best practices and ethical approaches that promote better preservation of Arizona’s cultural heritage going forward.
