...to our Northwest Anthropology website. The anthropology of the Pacific Northwest of North America - meaning the development of Northwest cultures, the history and impacts of interactions among cultures, and strategies that peoples have developed to survive and thrive - has important lessons for all of us. Our goal is to use this website to increase awareness of Northwest anthropology to the general public, descendents of the many cultures, anthropologists from other parts of the world, and even among anthropologists within the Northwest.

We've organized the website into the following sections:

Encyclopedia of Northwest Anthropology - We are building this tool to help people find information about anthropological topics associated with the Pacific Northwest. To use the encyclopedia, simply type a word into the box in the upper right hand corner.

What's New - Here are included public and professional events occurring around the Northwest; please feel free to send us news of events that you would like us to post.

Sprague Research Library - In 2012, Roderick and Linda Sprague donated their massive professional library of Northwest historical archaeology, history, ethnology, Plateau archaeology, trade beads, and burials to the Fort Walla Walla Museum, in Walla Walla, Washington. The Museum is working with Northwest Anthropology LLC to get the collection organized and make it available to scholars throughout the Northwest and elsewhere. Under this tab, you will find background information on the library, descriptions of its contents, access policies and procedures, and ways you can help us create a first-class research center for Northwest Anthropology.

Journal of Northwest Anthropology (JONA) - This is an exciting time for the Northwest's only professional journal publishing anthropological research from all four subfields (archaeology, biological, linguistics, and social). With almost a half century of published material, the internet provides new opportunities to share this information globally. We are also using the website to improve access for our subscribers, find researchers ready to publish their work, and reach new audiences. Under the JONA tab, you can search JONA titles and abstracts for topics of interest; view current and past volumes; view thematic compilations; and obtain information on subscribing, submitting a manuscript, and our peer review process.

Archaeological Disasters - During our past thirty years working in Northwest cultural resource management, we've see far too much destruction of the region’s cultural and historical heritage. Much of the destruction has been inadvertent, but preventable, if agencies, developers, and heritage specialists had taken the time to understand the potential impacts that their projects could cause. We are using this part of the website to take what we have learned and share it with the global community. We encourage those with similar interests to share their stories and stimulate dialogue.

Links - We provide links to other websites that focus on various topics of interest to Northwest Anthropology.
