Ms. Dyan Youpee, Lakota/Dakota, represents the Fort Peck Assiniboine & Sioux Tribes of northeast Montana, in cultural preservation as the Cultural Resource Department Director. Her position also serves as the Tribes’ historic preservation officer (THPO), museum curator, archivist, and conducts field surveys on her reservation lands. Ms. Youpee’s father created the department for the Tribes’ in 1995, where she grew up watching her fathers’ efforts of cultural preservation. Today she’s a practitioner of embedded generational knowledge, as well as exploring new evolving career practices that she balances with her cultural upbringing. Ms. Youpee believes her work is most dedicated to acknowledging her ancestors (her father) and to the future lineage yet to be born. She will be presenting on her work as Tribal Historic Preservation Officer. 

Ms. Youpee graduated an A.A. in American Indian Studies, A.A.S. in Business Technology, and B.A. in Anthropology. She recently won the National Association of Tribal Historic Preservation Officers Excellence Award this past February, and is pursuing a masters degree in CRM at St. Cloud State University, MN.

This event is presented in partnership with the University of Arkansas Department of Anthropology.
