“Understanding a Resilient Amazonian People: A 40-Year Profile of the Awajśn People of Northern Peru”
Michael F. Brown,
 School for Advanced Research

Dr. Michael F. Brown, President of SAR, will present an illustrated talk about his work with the Awajśn people, one of the largest indigenous groups in the Peruvian Amazon. The Awajśn, who are close relatives of the Jķvaro or Shuar people of Ecuador, were once the most feared warriors of western Amazonia. Today they are arguably the most dynamic indigenous group in Peru: ambitious, committed to education and economic success, and fiercely protective of their land and civil rights. This lecture will consider contradictory forces bearing down on the Awajśn and their efforts to survive as a distinct people.


Michael F. Brown is president of the School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe and professor emeritus of anthropology and Latin American Studies at Williams College, Williamstown, MA.  He is the author of six books, most recently Upriver: The Turbulent Life and Times of an Amazonian People (Harvard University Press, 2014).
