Dr. Craig Lee
At the request of the Wilsall, MT public school, Dr. Craig Lee led a discussion with fourth and sixth grade students about cultural respect, archaeological stewardship and the Clovis-age Anzick child burial. About 40 students, teachers and chaperones attended the event on an absolutely gorgeous spring day. Prior to the tour, the sixth grade students worked through the BLM’s Project Archaeology curriculum guide “Investigating the First Peoples, the Clovis Child Burial” (goo.gl/LZvCgH), and the fourth grade students studied Montana history, which includes the program “Indian Education for All” (goo.gl/IVHh6).
