“An Indigenous Analysis of the Grotesques of the Southeast," presented by Dr. Maggie Spivey-Faulkner, Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology, University of Alberta 

A new reanalysis of the large assemblage of zoomorphic carvings excavated at the Fort Center archaeological site in south Florida has revealed what appears to be a nearly 1,000-year rooftop sculptural tradition in the American southeast. Here, we will review that reanalysis, including a nascent indigenous method of interpreting the figural depictions using folk taxonomies developed out of Native southeastern languages. Finally, we will contextualize this work within the broader project of indigenous archaeology.
