Description: The purpose of this essay is to introduce an anthropological landscape approach. It considers landscape broadly as the physical and conceptual interaction of nature and culture rather than the sum of material modifications, which people might make to a particular geographic space. I suggest that cultural resource managers might find this perspective useful in the future when they consider how people of traditional and historical communities in the region construct and sustain their associations with the Valles Caldera National Preserve (VCNP). Using concepts developed by the U.S. Department of Interior, National Park Service (NPS) for managing culturally significant landscape resources, this discussion goes beyond a simple emphasis on the readily visible built environment. It also considers the cultural-historical traditions through which people of affiliated communities have sustained their associations with the VCNP as part of their traditional homelands based on their land use history and traditions.

Keywords: Valles Caldera National Preserve, VCNP, land use, anthropological landscape
