Applications for Carryl B. Martin Research Grant

Five years ago AAHS received a generous bequest from the estate of long time AAHS member, Carryl B. Martin to support research. The Board decided to use this bequest to fund a significant research grant of $5,000 for a project that would make substantial contribution to the field of archaeology/anthropology of the American Southwest or Mexican Northwest. This is the final year of the grant. Applications are due on December 18, 2020. You must be an AAHS member to apply. All details and previous winners can be found here.

Becoming Hopi Receives 2020 Subvention Award

We are pleased to announce this year’s $5,000 Subvention Award has been given to Wesley Bernardini, Stewart B. Koyiyumptewa, Gregson Schachner, and Leigh Kuwanwisiwma for their book “Becoming Hopi: A History” to be published by the University of Arizona Press. We received a number of outstanding and worthy requests. In making the award the AAHS Publications Committee noted:

“This volume presents the results of 15 years of collaboration between the University of Redlands, UCLA and the Hopi Cultural Preservation Office. The authors have taken particular care to make the book appealing to a wide audience (including academic, tribal, and popular readers), avoiding academic jargon, using sidebars to explain technical concepts, and presenting methodological detail in ‘supplementary information’ sections at the end of chapters rather than breaking the flow of text within chapters. The book contains more than 300 color photographs, as well, and the authors indicate that the subvention will help to make it more affordable for readers.”

The purpose of this program is to provide money in support of the first publication of digital or print books or Kiva journal articles that further AAHS’s mission. Many sources of grant funding do not support publication costs. Through this program, AAHS can provide occasional funding to prevent this barrier to the sharing of research results.
