Native American and Indigenous Studies

Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology

The Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology is Brown University’s teaching museum.  A resource across the university, we inspire creative and critical thinking about culture by fostering interdisciplinary understanding of the material world.  We provide opportunities for faculty and students to work with collections and the public, teaching through objects and programs in classrooms, in the gallery in Manning Hall, and at the Collections Research Center.

 

Native American and Indigenous Studies

Native American and Indigenous Studies at Brown (NAISAB) is an interdisciplinary working group of faculty and students interested in teaching and research that explores, and increases the understanding of, the cultural traditions and political experiences of indigenous peoples (especially in the Western Hemisphere) through historical and contemporary lenses.
