2020 Carryl B. Martin Award goes to Thatcher Rogers

The 2020 Carryl B. Martin award of $5,00o has been given to Thatcher Rogers of the University of New Mexico for his project entitled Between Casas Grandes and Salado: Community Formation and Interaction at the Pendleton Ruin Site in the Borderlands of the American Southwest/Northwest Mexico Region, A.D. 1200-1450.

This project seeks to examine how groups located in fringe and peripheral areas adopt cultural technologies and behavioral attributes from cultural cores and will explore these processes on both a local and a regional scale through an examination of late prehispanic settlements in the International Four Corners area of the American Southwest/Mexican Northwest region.

Eight excellent proposals from eight different institutions were received making the choice difficult for the Awards Committee.

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.
