Northeast Archeological Resource Program
Lexie Lowe is from eastern Kentucky but came to New York through her graduate program at Binghamton University, where she is soon to complete a degree in Public Archaeology. She received a B.A. in Art History from Northern Kentucky University in 2017, and it is at that time that she found her interests drawn to understanding past peoples and communities through their material culture; ergo, archaeology. By working with Indigenous and descendent communities and other underrepresented stakeholders, she hopes to help decolonize archaeological practice in the parks and wider region. During her tenure with the Northeast Archaeological Resource Program (NARP), she will be supporting parks in the region by organizing and implementing a volunteer archaeological resource monitoring program. She is excited to serve the local communities in her area and promote engagement and outreach in archaeology as she explores and gets settled in the Hudson River Valley!
