Effigy Mounds National Monument contains more than 200 earth mounds, the highest concentration of mounds in the world, some as old as 2500 years. In this interview, Barland-Liles will discuss the magic of the effigy mounds, the history of the land, the Native American Graves and Repatriation Act, his building relationships with Native Nations, and the investigation he led into a much-publicized federal crime that happened on site.
Wednesday, March 10, 7-8 p.m CST. A zoom link will be sent via email on the morning of the event.
$10/person fee. Registation deadline is Tuesday, March 9 at 4 p.m.
Presenter: David Barland-Liles has been a law enforcement officer for the National Park Service for the last 25 years as both a park ranger and special agent, and now as an enforcement program manager. He is also an investigator for the National Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act Office on whose behalf he performs investigations nationwide. Protecting indigenous sacred sites and enforcing indigenous civil rights and resource protection laws has become his expertise. Success with these matters is only possible through the creation of transparent government-to-government trust relationships with indigenous sovereign nations.
