Franz Boas PapersWestern Social Science


The Franz Boas Papers: Documentary Edition is committed to working with Indigenous communities to make our work as useful and relevant as possible. We have established an Indigenous Advisory Council (IAC) that functions as an essential partner in this project, providing guidance on culturally sensitive materials, taking a pro-active role on the editorial board, facilitating community and institutional outreach and collaboration. 

If you are from or affiliated with an Indigenous community and would like to get in touch with the IAC or the project's Communicaties liaison,  please contact Dr. Susan Hill, Chair, Indigenous Advisory Council, Franz Boas Papers project (  or Communities Liaison, Dawn Nicolson (
