Shawn Evans To Speak At Texas A&M Symposium

By Shawn Evans

Shawn has been invited by his alma mater to participate in the 18th Annual Historic Preservation Symposium, organized by the Center for Heritage Conservation. The symposium, to be held March 3-4, will be held at the Geren Auditorium in the College of Architecture. The event will be focused on "Heritage, Conservation, & Archaeology." Shawn's presentation will highlight our work at Ohkay Owingeh, address the technical and philosophical challenges of vernacular preservation, and advocate for the flexibility for Native American tribes to self-determine preservation approaches in line with their cultural values. 

Also speaking at the symposium:

  • John Stubbs, Director of Preservation Studies Program, Tulane University

  • Colleen Hanratty, Blue Creek Archaeological Project

  • Peter Gavette, Archaeologist, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, NPS
