Message from the President
Because of the continuing risk of community transmission of the COVID-19 virus, SAR’s campus remains closed until public health authorities deem it safe for us to resume in-person events.
In 2020 we transitioned from live events to a robust schedule of online offerings that include behind-the-scenes access to our scholars, artists, and collections.
Our online events have given us new ways to share innovative content that illuminates topics of broad public concern. Online platforms allow us to serve our longstanding members as well as a growing global audience. With challenge comes opportunity.
We expect to resume some in-person events by mid-summer 2021. Until then, I invite you to join us as we pursue SAR’s important mission by electronic means.

SAR members Russ and Diane Kyncl share the fifty-year story of how they became friends with the Edaakie family of Zuni Pueblo, how the late potter Timothy Edaakie helped them to connect with SAR, and why they decided to include SAR in their legacy plan.
In each session of his course on Navajo weaving, artist Venancio Aragon takes his students on a journey that exposes the impact of non-Indigenous institutions on Diné peoples and their making, as well as the sovereignty that Indigenous peoples, including artists, have continued to exercise through each moment.
SAR Press is starting a new blog series comprised of interviews with diverse scholars who have recently published or are in the midst of publishing their first book and who can offer guidance and encouragement to colleagues who are just starting to think about publishing. We hope that these interviews make a small contribution to supporting junior scholars as they begin the publishing process.
Many thanks for your continued support of SAR during this challenging time. Your contribution makes it possible for us to deliver quality content virtually that furthers our mission to explore humanity and better understand the world we live in. Never has there been a more important time to do this work. As we navigate the current environment, we welcome your input, questions, and suggestions. You can reach us at email@example.com.
