The SAA first created the Native American Scholarships Fund in 1988 to support Native people who are interested in studying archaeology. The scholarship is named in honor of the SAA’s first president, Arthur C. Parker, who served from 1935 to 1936. Parker was of Seneca ancestry through his father’s family, and he spent his first 11 years on the Cattaraugus Reservation in western New York. The scholarship is an award of $5000 to support undergraduate studies for Native American students including, but not limited to tuition, travel, food, housing, books, supplies, equipment, and child care.
Ms. Stevens is pursuing a BA concentrating in archaeology with a minor in museum studies. She is from the Pueblo of Isleta and now lives in Santa Fe with her husband and two children. Her interests are in the history of indigenous societies of the New World, interactions between societies who are separated by vast distances, and how people adapted in the past both to changing environments. Upon completion of her undergraduate degree, she intends to attend graduate school to ultimately pursue a doctorate. As a member of an underrepresented Native group in the field of archaeological sciences she is honored to serve as an ambassador to the anthropological community. The SAA Native American Scholarship competition is open to all Native peoples from anywhere in the Americas, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Indigenous Pacific Islanders. February 22, 2017
