On Tuesday, November 29, the Department of Anthropology hosted a wonderful talk by Principal Chief Geoffrey Standing Bear of Osage Nation. Principal Chief Standing Bear discussed his experience of navigating federal laws and relationships. Conversations were directed by graduate students Noah Collins (Cherokee Nation/White Mountain Apache Tribe) of Anthropology and Rodrigo Córdova (Osage) of Astrophysics. Despite the challenges, Chief Standing Bear remains optimistic about the future of the Osage Nation.
