Hoe een inheems perspectief de archeologische interpretatie kan verbreden
How Indigenous-focused research can inform broader archaeological practice. In Europe, archaeologists have traditionally engaged less with the concept of Indigenous archaeology—and the various cultural-anthropological tenets underpinning it—than with the related, but distinct, concepts of ethnicity, nationalism and even autochthony, which are ostensibly more congruent with the various forms of social organization observed across the continent from pre-Neolithic times to the present. In this article, we argue that due to their recognition and embracing of unique systems of knowledge production (ontologies), contemporary Indigenous understandings of the past can inform the archaeologies of regions currently without Indigenous populations. We draw upon our experiences carrying out fieldwork amongst Indigenous peoples and within their traditional territories.
