"Native Americans and Anthropologists: A New Relationship" 

Anthropologists have been studying “non-Western” peoples, including Native Americans, for more than 150 years. Although many insights about America’s first inhabitants have been gained in this endeavor, Anthropologists are also indebted to Native Americans for insisting that more and better information is to be had through closer collaboration with them in research that reflects their own needs and interests. Dr. Bragdon will illustrate with examples from her own research in the Native Northeast.
About the Speaker:

Dr. Kathleen Bragdon is an anthropologist and ethnohistorian with a research focus in the history and culture of Native peoples of the Northeast.
