Seeking other scholars working on projects in the Black Hills or with Sioux Nations

I’m starting a new project in the West River country, and looking to connect with other scholars conducting research in the Black Hills or with the Sioux Nations. I’d particularly love to connect with other anthropologists who have current or ongoing projects in the region to exchange ideas and scholarly resources. 

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Re-centering American Indians in United States History

looking for research assistant to work with Collier papers at Yale

Dear neteros,

Can anyone recommend a research assistant to do some work with the Collier papers? I would like someone with background in Native American history as they will have to identify documents belonging to particular tribes from within the Great Sioux Nation.



Mapping Indigenous LA

The American Historical Association's blog, AHA Today, recently did an interview with UCLA American Indian Studies professor Mishuana Goeman about the university's digital storymapping project called Mapping Indigenous LA. The goal of the project is to "raise consciousness and knowledge about the multiple layers of indigenous Los Angeles."

Allan G. Bogue, 1921-2016

It's with profound sadness that I note the passing of Allan G. Bogue, Frederick Jackson Turner Professor-Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin. He was an outstanding scholar and a kind and generous mentor. We will miss him greatly.
