The High Plains Society
Applied Anthropology

About Us

The High Plains Society for Applied Anthropology is a regional professional organization of university and college teachers, students, practitioners (government, private, consulting, etc.), community representatives, and others interested in using the tools of anthropology and related fields to solve human and environmental problems.

While founded and based in the High Plains region of the United States (a vast area encompassing the eastern Rocky Mountains and western Great Plains), we have members from throughout North America and the world. We share knowledge and build professional and personal connections through an annual conference and other meetings; a professional, peer-reviewed journal (The Applied Anthropologist); an electronic newsletter and listservs; and this website.

We invite you to learn more about our organization, to become a member, and to get involved in our activities.
