The Digital Index of North American Archaeology (DINAA) project aggregates archaeological and historical data from state and tribal governmental authorities that manage North American cultural resources east of the Mississippi River. This project will expand DINAA to encompass the remainder of the United States, building rich chronological, legal, and environmental metadata for between two and three million archaeological sites. This work will contribute to the national digital platform by providing researchers, museums, libraries, government offices, and members of the public the largest and most comprehensive Linked Open Data gazetteer of historical and archaeological sites in the United States. Curating these data will improve government-to-government relationships needed by sovereign tribal nations to effectively manage and protect ancestral cultural heritage.
