BLM Monticello Field Office Ethnographic Information Partnership Project

03/10/2017 13:18 | AAC Admin (Administrator)

The BLM Monticello Field Office (MFO) received funding in 2016 for a literature review of associated tribe’s cultural connections to the MFO. We are pleased to announce that this project has been awarded to Living Heritage Anthropology LLC. The MFO currently manages much of the greater Cedar Mesa area in Southeast Utah. The goal of this study will be to inform BLM officials of how Native American tribes are connected to the MFO and how they have utilized the range of ethnographic resources found within this complex landscape. This information will aid the BLM MFO in appropriately managing and interpreting this area, as well as serving as a basis for deepening relationships with associated tribes. We are asking members of the Arizona Archaeological Council for their assistance in sharing any relevant ethnographic or ethnohistoric sources to assist with this literature review. Please contact Jessica Yaquinto, Living Heritage Anthropology, by phone (970-335-9092) or email ( Thank you in advance. We look forward to collaborating with you on this important project.
