Susan Brown McGreevy is a noted authority on the folk art, basketry, and textiles of Navajo and neighboring Indian tribes, and an anthropologist with interests in contemporary issues that impact the development of Southwestern Indian arts and culture. These topics have been the focus of her professional life since 1970, when her fieldwork in anthropology took her to the Navajo Nation. She was Director of the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian from 1978–1982, and Curator of North American Ethnology at the Kansas City Museum from 1974–1977. She is currently a research associate at the Wheelwright Museum, the School for Advanced Research, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, and the Museum of International Folk Art. She is a “distinguished trustee” with The Nature Conservancy, and serves as Vice-President on the board of Audubon New Mexico. McGreevy is also an instructor at the Renesan Institute for Lifelong Learning in Santa Fe, where she teaches classes about Southwest Indian arts and culture, as well as women authors and anthropologists working in the Southwest.
