VENTURA COUNTY ARCHAEOLOGICAL SOCIETY
“Multi-Disciplinary Approaches to Understanding the Past: Pimu Catalina Island Archaeology Project"
Dr. Wendy G. Teeter, Fowler Museum, UCLA
This presentation will look at the different contributions multiple disciplines and voices continue to make in exploring early life on Pimungna (Catalina Island). Researchers of the Pimu Catalina Island Archaeology Project have focused on a variety of different questions and this occasion provides an opportunity to present results from projects ranging from immersive educational approaches to developing chronologies across Catalina. Collectively these studies are advancing our understanding of human settlement across the island and the region, while also allowing us the opportunity to reevaluate existing collections.
Dr. Wendy G. Teeter is the Curator of Archaeology for the Fowler Museum, UCLA
NAGPRA Coordinator, and teaches in UCLA American Indian Studies and California State University,
Northridge Anthropology Department. She is on the Register of Profes- sional Archaeologists and
co-directs the Pimu Catalina Island Archaeology Project, which seeks to understand the indigenous
history of the island and Tongva homelands through
multi-disciplinary and collaborative methodologies.

The VCAS/Ventura County Archaeological Society was established in 1972 when concerned Ventura County citizens as well as local professional and avocational archaeologists saw a need to organize, study and preserve our County's rich prehistoric heritage.
The Society has been instrumental in the implementation of research and preservation goals aimed at our local archaeological resources. With an eye towards the future the Society has a collections and archival curation program, site recordation and monitoring program, and a continuing education program.
