Richard Wilshusen has 40 years of experience as a field archaeologist, an instructor, a curator, a contractor, and an administrator. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Colorado in 1991. He has worked with universities, cultural resource management firms, state and federal governments, and tribes. Wilshusen’s research publications have focused on public archaeology, early Pueblo village formation, Southwestern migration pathways, early great house communities, and Navajo ethnogenesis. He was originally trained as a cultural anthropologist, and he drew on that training when he worked on federal and state repatriation and reburial issues. That work made him aware of the concepts of disenfranchised grief and moral injury.
