NAIS Fall Student Portfolio Presentations

Mon, November 18, 2013 | CLA 2.606 Normandy Scholars Room

12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Please join NAIS for our Fall Student Portfolio Presentations from 12:30-2pm in CLA 2.606 on Monday, November 18 with students Angela Tapia and Carlos Duarte. 

Carlos Duarte, a student in the School of Information, will be presenting "Digital Resources for Native Voices." This past summer he conducted research with Dr. James Cox and Paul Rascoe, a librarian at the PCL, and assembled an online research guide for the Native American and Indigenous Studies program. He gathered information from faculty and students, evaluated resources, and organized his research on a webpage to be hosted by the PCL.
Angela Tapia, a student in LLILAS, will be presenting "The Kakataibo Indigenous Peoples and the Camano Indigenous Peoples: An approximation to their sense of belonging." Her work addresses a very well-known conception which indicates that the Kakataibo Indigenous Peoples (KIP) are composed of seven communities and a group of people that retain full control of their relationships with the outside world: these are the Camano. In the academy, Indigenous Peoples who live in similar situations to Camano are labeled as “Isolated Indigenous Peoples” or “Uncontacted Tribes,” among other names. The goal of this research is to challenge classical anthropology’s conception of the KIP as a single unit.

Food and refreshments will be provided.
