Brian Haley publishes new research article

As part of his continuing scholarship on people and communities who adopt Native American identities despite lacking the ancestry or affiliation such claims are expected to entail, Brian Haley (Anthropology) has published a new research article, “Craig Carpenter and the neo-Indians of LONAI,” in the American Indian Quarterly (Spring 2018). The article addresses how Carpenter became a foundational neo-Indian in the 1950s by merging metaphysical spirituality, political activism, and building a network of like-minded self-described “traditionalists.”
