OAM 2021 Poster
The 2021 Oklahoma Archaeology Month poster was designed by students participating in the Voices of Greenwood internship. This program, for students from communities directly affected by the Tulsa Race Massacre, was designed as a pilot for presenting archaeology as heritage to historically oppressed groups. Over the course of five weeks, students learned how archaeologists reconstruct the past from the materials people have left behind and explored ways in which history often plays into politics and complicated ethical dilemmas. They also looked at ways in which the archaeological project at the site of the Tulsa Massacre is restoring the voices of those who have been silenced.

The poster will be available digitally, but we will also have hard copies available for you to post at your institution or around town. Help spread the word about OAM!
