    • Abstract:
      This article discusses the author's view regarding the proper acknowledgment of history. The authors state that a proper acknowledgment of history is basic to an understanding of the present circumstances of the societies. They argue that as individuals inherit traits from their parents, so a discipline inherits traits from its practitioners. It inherits assumptions, theories, methods, and values, as so it is with archaeology. They add that archaeology has inherited a legacy that is deeply colonial and that archaeologists, the Indigenous peoples with whom they work, and the increasing number of Indigenous archaeologists all inherit shared and overlapping legacies from the past. The claim that the decolonization of archaeology depends on a commitment to change.
