Statement of the Depiction of Human Remains and Funerary Objects and Use of Respectful Terminology in AAC Conference Presentations
Out of an abundance of respect for the ancient inhabitants of Arizona and their descendants, the Arizona Archaeological Council (AAC) does not allow the inclusion of photographs depicting human remains, human burials, or funerary objects in AAC conference presentations.
Illustrations may be used as necessary to convey important visual information. Presenters also shall review the Arizona State Museum guidance on Respectful Terminology Recommended for Discussion of Human Remains prior to any presentation discussing human remains. If a presenter has questions or concerns about illustrations proposed for inclusion in their presentation, they should feel free to contact the AAC for additional guidance: firstname.lastname@example.org.
