Title: Archaeology, heritage, and transdisciplinary research in the Aleutian Islands: 9,000 years of Unangam resilience informs us about our shared world and future.

This presentation focuses on Unangam and environmental histories in the Aleutian Islands as revealed by collaborative archaeological, ethnohistoric, and multidisciplinary research. Collaborative research across disciplines that uses inclusive theoretical approaches and makes space for Unangam perspectives changes our questions and interpretations. And, ever-improving technologies to examine midden remains allow us to know a lot about past ecosystems, making archaeology in the Aleutian Islands increasingly useful for examining contemporary critical environmental issues. These combined approaches and diverse views of the past and the present are allowing us to move toward a more nuanced understanding of ancestral Unangam resilience mechanisms and the dynamic environment we all share.
