Famed Anthropologist to Lecture at Bates

In his talk March 24, Chagnon will address the controversy over who — anthropologists, missionaries or government agencies, among others — has the right to represent the Yanomamo’s interests to the outside world. The problem has intensified, Chagnon says, because the Yanomamo are now among the best- known ancient cultures in the world. The invasion of Yanomamo territory by Brazilian miners in 1987 focused attention on the issue. Chagnon himself has been assailed by all sides because of his refusal to endorse any of them.
