Rebuttal of Decade-Old Accusations Roils Anthropology Meeting Anew - The Chronicle of Higher Education Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Rebuttal of Decade-Old Accusations Roils Anthropology Meeting Anew - The Chronicle of Higher Education: A committee of the American Anthropological Association, by contrast, produced a long two-volume report in 2002 that rejected some of Mr. Tierney's accusations but supported certain others. (The allegation that has been most comprehensively rejected by all parties is the notion that Mr. Neel allowed measles to spread.)

But that was not the end of the story. In 2005, the anthropology association's members voted to rescind the 2002 report, on the grounds that the association was ill-equipped to judge individual members' conduct, and that the committee had failed to give Mr. Chagnon due process.

In the four years since that decision, the debate has not quite died, as a small group of anthropologists has continued to campaign for the repatriation of blood samples gathered by Mr. Chagnon and Mr. Neel's teams. Mr. Tierney, meanwhile, has kept a low profile, rarely appearing publicly to defend his book. (He could not be located to be interviewed for this article.)

Stanford-based program trains indigenous leaders Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Stanford-based program trains indigenous leaders: [news.stanford.edu] "Caribou only cross roads if leaders do it first," said Warren Maaguk Jones, a 2013 fellow at Stanford's First Nations' Futures Institute (FNFI), noting similarities to his community's social dynamics. "When [one of our leaders] crosses the road, people will say, 'Wow, he's really doing something that's true to who we are.'"

Jones, a Yup'ik native Alaskan, recounted the story during a recent symposium to celebrate the 10th anniversary of FNFI, a two-week program at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment that supports young indigenous leaders in developing values-based skills to tackle environmental, economic, social and cultural challenges in their communities.
