Tonight’s guest, Emily Van Alst, is a Descendant of the Lakota Sioux Nation and works avidly in public outreach.. Although the Lakota and Pawnee are historical enemies; Carlton and Emily have chosen to put aside their tribal differences to deliver our listeners an awesome episode.
Emily Van Alst got started in anthropology at Yale University and she is currently a PhD student at Indiana University Bloomington
Her research interests include Rock Art, Gender, Indigenous Archaeology, Public Archaeology, Indigenous Feminism, and Ethnography
As a goal of this podcast is to provide our listeners with multi-faceted approaches to archaeology, we are super excited to talk with her tonight. So let’s count some coup and get this episode started.
