Randall Milliken

Recipient of the 2018 David A. Fredrickson Lifetime Achievement Award

The David A. Fredrickson Lifetime Achievement Award is given for cumulative contributions to California archaeology that have spanned a lifetime and are therefore reserved for the elder members of our profession. Although once awarded as a surprise, the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement award is now notified well ahead of time so that they and their supporters can plan to attend the Annual Meeting Awards Dinner. The recipient is identified during the Annual Meeting with a special ribbon on his or her name tag and is hosted, along with family members, at the awards dinner.

California Indian Heritage Preservation Award

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bill Madrigal, Sr.
Cahuilla

Recipient of the 2018 California Indian Heritage Award

The Society for California Archaeology is honored to formally recognize contributions made by California Indians to the preservation of their cultural heritage. The desire to preserve the heritage of this state is something that California Indians and archaeologists have in common.

We know that many generations of California Indians have struggled for cultural survival and autonomy. Through this struggle, they have persevered, and in doing so, have given us a greater understanding of their culture and history. Their perseverance has also led to the current blossoming of California Indian heritage.Recognizing that any one individual or group may have participated in many different ways, some examples of the kind of contributions this award is meant to honor including the following:

  • Maintaining traditional ways and knowledge
  • Creating cultural centers, demonstration sites, and workshops
  • Publishing, and otherwise documenting traditional stories, songs, and history
  • Educating archaeologists, anthropologists, and historians, thereby building bridges of understanding between the academic and traditional worlds
  • Participating in legal contexts to safeguard the respect of their ancestors, achieve federal recognition of their tribes, or otherwise taking part at state and national levels for the well-being of their communities
  • Improving the social, economic, and cultural well-being of their communities

The SCA California Indian Heritage Preservation Award was created to honor California Indians who have contributed to one or more of these important accomplishments. It is with sincere appreciation and respect that we offer this award each year from the year 2000 onward.

A nominee for this award:

  1. Need not be a member of the Society for California Archaeology.
  2. Must be nominated by a member of the Society for California Archaeology. Nonmembers may request a member to submit a nomination on their behalf.
  3. Must be a California Indian who has contributed to the preservation of his or her culture in a substantial way either through cumulative contributions or one exceptional contribution.

This award is most similar to the Society for California Archaeology’s most prestigious award, the Lifetime Achievement Award. It is most often given for cumulative contributions (by an individual or group) that have spanned a lifetime and therefore tends to be reserved for elder candidates. It may, however, be given to more junior candidates for outstanding onetime contributions. The goal of the award is to recognize one outstanding individual or group. However, occasionally more than one award may be given. It is also possible to give the award to individuals or groups from the past.

The individual or group recipient of the California Indian Heritage Preservation Award is notified well ahead of time so that they and their supporters can plan to attend the banquet. They are identified during the meeting with a special ribbon on their name tag, are provided accommodation and travel by the SCA, and are hosted to the banquet.

The deadline for the submission of nominations is January 1, 2019.
