Celebrating our student curators!

Each semester, the Kawsay Ukhunchay: Andean & Amazonian Indigenous Art & Cultural Artifacts Research Collection is supported by the hard work and scholarship of an interdisciplinary cohort of undergraduate and graduate student curators. These students’ efforts are recognized with the Whitten Andean & Amazonian Studies Scholarship, a $500 award made possible by a generous donation from Dr. Norm Whitten.

CLAS is proud to announce the Spring 2022 recipients of this award:

  • Alice Cheng
  • Hallie Fried
  • Cameron Logar
  • Tamryn McDermott
  • Claire McLean
  • Amanda Tobin Ripley
  • Micah Unzueta
  • Victor Vimos Vimos

These kawsay waqaychaqkuna (those who safeguard, keep, and preserve with care), work under the guidance of Professor Michelle Wibbelsman to maintain the collection, develop outreach programs, and conduct original research on the artifacts.
