      Sean, Aloha! I am very interested in your approach to community-based
      archaeology...I am Director of a Center for Community Research and we do
      historical archaeology in urban neighborhoods about the history of those
      neighborhoods done by the residents of them. We definitely need to
      understand more on how to involve the neighborhood residents in the core
      planning and project process. Do you have anything written that I could
      look over? Also, we have a network in SACC of community linked
      archeology programs and would love to have yours in it. Lastly, i am
      co-Chair of the AAA's Anthropology Education Committee and we may need
      presentors with your perspective at our next Invited Session. Please
      keep in touch. Mark Lewine Cuyahoga Community College

      Aloha Ann,
      My name is Sean Naleimaile, I am currently finishing up my MA at
      University of Hawaii in Archaeology. I am also currently working at
      Hawaii Community College here in Hilo, HI. I have been working to
      develop a Cultural Resource Management program here at HawCC. I think it
      is very unique in that it is being developed through the lens of a
      Native Hawaiian perspective. This program is part of an existing program
      which allows the learners to recieve an A.A.S. in three Native Hawaiian
      cultural practices that being Hula (Hawaiian dance), Lawai`a (Hawaiian
      fishing techniques/traditions), and Mahi`ai (Taro cultuvation). All
      three are traditional cultural practices. I have begun to develop a
      program to be housed with those three that looks at the field of CRM
      through the eyes of the Native community. We intend to teach everything
      from this perspective, be it the laws of CRM to the archaeological field
      methods. We will introduce and reinforce Hawaiin cultural practices and
      foundations and build upon that knowledge with the basics of CRM work.
      The impetus for this program comes from the dire need to have a stronger
      Native / local voice in the the fields of archaeology/ anthropology and
      CRM. I presented at the San Jose AAAs and was interested in talking with
      SACC but didn't get around to it. I think this program is unique and I
      hope to at some point be able to participate in a conference to
      introduce it to the group. Maybe if I wasn't going to the SAAs I could
      afford to attend the Monterey conference. I do plan to attend the AAAs
      this year again ( if finances are available). Anyway I just wanted to
      introduce myself and my developing program and see if there's interest
      in what happening here in Hawaii.
