Witaya lecture

The Interfaculty Initiative for American Indian Affairs is sponsoring Witaya Lecture Series, a program that focuses on topics related to American Indian and Alaskan Native studies.

Witaya means coming together as a community in the Lakota language.

The series begins at noon March 4 with a lecture by Puneet Sahota, Washington University M.D./Ph.D. candidate, on “Native American Communities and Medical/Genetics Research: Reflections on Bioethics, Blood and the Body.” The lecture, co-sponsored by the Department of Anthropology and the Center for the Study of Ethics and Human Values, will be held in McMillan Cafe.

The lectures are free and open to the public. The next lecture is March 20.
