Please join the ASU Library for an engaging discussion with Margaret M. Bruchac regarding her 2018 book, "Savage Kin: Indigenous Informants and American Anthropologists," this year’s winner of the Labriola Center American Indian National Book Award.

“Savage Kin” explores the contributions of Indigenous informants to the anthropological research enterprise of the 20th century, and highlights early encounters between anthropologists and Indigenous communities that served to generate foundational knowledge and collecting practices that still affect Indigenous communities today. 

As chair of the book selection committee, David Martinez, associate professor of American Indian Studies at Arizona State University, will lead the discussion with Bruchac, an Indigenous anthropologist and associate professor of anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania, as part of the 11th annual Labriola award event.  

Hosted by the Labriola National American Indian Data Center, this event is free and open to the public.
