Nicholas Barron is the 2020 William Y. and Nettie K. Adams Summer Scholar. Barron is associate faculty of anthropology at Mission College and managing editor at the History of Anthropology Review, illustrates how the International Symposium became a consequential participant in the ongoing efforts to re-present the Yaqui as a newly recognized American Indian tribe. Yaqui intellectuals and activists strategically embraced and challenged anthropological institutions and authority in order to affirm their newfound political status-even in unexpected places such as an academic conference.
