UWM Anthropologist Bernard Perley at the State Department

Dr. Perley

On November 29, 2018, Bernard Perley, UW-Milwaukee’s linguistic anthropologist, and faculty affiliate of the Electa Quinney Institute, was invited to present at the Department of State in Washington DC to mark Native American Heritage Month. The invitation came from the Native American Foreign Affairs Council (NAFAC), and the title of Dr. Perley’s talk was “Experiencing Native North America:
Native American Cultural and Language Revitalization”. When asked about the event, Dr. Perley responded by saying: “I talked about our work at UWM (including [the star stories with] Jean from the planetarium), ICS, and EQI. The audience was interested and responsive. UWM’s reach goes far and wide!”
