It’s American Archives Month! Come participate in a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon to help tell the stories of women “trowelblazers” in the field of anthropology, drawing on collections held at the Smithsonian’s National Anthropological Archives and Human Studies Film Archives. Learn about the roles women played in some of the field’s major breakthroughs. Get to know anthropologists such as ethnomusicologist Francis Densmore, Standing Rock Sioux anthropologist and activist Beatrice Medicine, archaeologist Rose Solecki, and economic anthropologist Stanley Ann Dunham (mother of Barack Obama).
