Ethan Cochrane ( Associate Professor in Anthropology at the University of Auckland)

Abstract

For approximately 30 years I have conducted archaeological research in the Pacific Islands as a foreigner. The beginning of this time period coincides with some of the earliest indigenous archaeology in the region and this body of work is now more prevalent. In this workshop/roundtable I will summarise my experience working in indigenous communities in the Pacific to set the stage for discussion and mutual leaning.
