2) native Americans -in US and Canada, we have a nice refrain of this land is your land. -the answer to the question of ownership has changed a lot. -1492-columbus came and this set in motion of European invasion!!! -when people encountered others were already there, some explanations had to be made of the lifestyles they had. The Spanish were unprepared for the Aztecs and Incas and unprepared for the Mississippian world who by then who seized to build mounds and got depopulated. So who were the mound builders? -early settlers came in 1700s, there were not many native Americans left. Many have been wiped out by European diseases. People like Thomas Jefferson was curious about these mounds and what these connections were with these mound and people who lived around. -he wrote Note on the state of Virginia - he says he wants to excavate these mounds and see what they are that are near his house. and also removing them to get more land. He found human bones in the mounds. His excavations than the ones done in site of Hopewell 100 years later. 3) heritage management and legal protection -over time, there has been more thought and protection on these ancient sites because they are a finite information. Ancient people are gone. We need to preserve and protect those when we have better techniques and technologies -there are a number of a laws to preserve and protect the site and environment: 1. 1906 antiquity act-first reaction to the widespread looting. Regulating these scholars who are just getting anything. 2. 1935 historic site act 3. 1966 historic preservation act 4. 1990 nag pro law-had the most significant effect. Trumps private properties-native American graves protection and repatrition at-federal law-it is about ARCHAEOLOGICAL STUFF.
