The many professions that fall under the umbrella of cultural resources and heritage management are struggling to address how material culture should be managed. However, our history is not simply a story about what has happened in the past. Whether we realize it or not—we are making history as we go along. Our history is in fact the perpetually unfolding narrative of who we are — the heritage that steadies our continued progress through uncertain times, and our legacy as an evolving people. Professional work in Glen Ellen, California is an example of how we can engage in a collaborative process and invite stakeholders to help identify and manage archaeological resources, historic architectural resources, and cultural landscapes. Through this process, professionals can expand the opportunities available to use their knowledge. Ultimately, in arguing for the inclusion of other views, we are also laying the groundwork for the broader inclusion of our own.
