research overview

  • I received my Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Oregon in 1964 and have conducted research among Tribal and non-Tribal populations of the Columbia Basin, Western Plains, Northern Great Basin and Southwest. I frequently contribute demographic, legal, housing, health, education, and economic research related to planning, program development, risk assessment, legal defense of treaty rights, and various Tribal environmental initiatives concerning water, fish, mining, nuclear waste, logging, and so forth.
