In 2016, Geralyn Ducady returned to Belize with the support of InHerit: Indigenous Heritage Passed to Present, an organization that brings educational and outreach heritage programs to Maya communities in Central America. Expanding upon a public opinion questionnaire she conducted in 1999, Ducady surveyed adults throughout Belize’s six districts to gauge their knowledge, opinions, and thoughts toward archaeology, stewardship, heritage, and identity, with the goal of improving heritage outreach. This work, sponsored by the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology, models how archaeologists can engage with local communities. Join Ducady as she shares her results, guiding attendees through methodology and lessons learned. 
Reception to follow.
