Bertha Parker Cody is considered the first Native American woman archaeologist and ethnologist in the United States. A new award in her honor will provide support to Native American women in the fields of archaeology or museum studies and will fund professional training, internships, and research.
Thirty years ago, NAGPRA transformed our field by laying crucial groundwork for a more ethical approach to archaeology. As part of our obligation to continue to improve the ethical practice of archaeology, the SAA is preparing to update our Statement on the Treatment of Human Remains and is soliciting member input in this process.
SAA past president and 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Meg Conkey has pledged to match gifts to the Historically Underrepresented Groups Scholarships (HUGS) program up to $5,000. Donate today and double your donation.
