This Lakota methodology and taxonomy for identifying traditional cultural property sites was developed from understanding how the Lakota view the land and how a place produces a tangible social meaning that directs how the Lakota use it in order to perform a culturally significant traditional activity. It identifies sites by making an association between a specific kind of place with a specific kind of activity. The taxonomy uses Lakota designators to identify site types in order to reveal their quality of traditional cultural significance and create the appropriate cultural context for relating to them.
