Meet Dorothy Grant, Haida fashion designer and SAR’s 2020 Katrin H. Lamon fellow. Hear her reflect on her time at SAR and her thoughtful response to the ongoing pandemic.

“SAR allows you to live out your dream and do something that you didn’t have time to do in your home environment. For artists and scholars, it’s a gift of time.” — Dorothy Grant

We invite you to stay connected with SAR as we explore new ways to share inspiring content that deepens our understanding of humankind and promotes Native American arts and culture even during this time of social separation.

Thank you for making a gift with meaning. Your involvement helps further innovative research and artistic creativity during this challenging time. 

Your investment ensures that SAR continues to provide one of the most unique learning environments in the country for anthropologists, social scientists and Native artists.

Your support means fellows in our programs have the time and space to explore challenging topics, discuss critical social issues, and expand their own creativity.

Your generosity makes it possible for our communities to enrich their lives by connecting with scholars, artists, and an extended network of innovative thinkers.
