Annalisa Heppner M.A., Circumpolar Laboratory Inventory Project Coordinator

Annalisa comes to the CLIP from a career in Cultural Resources Management where she participated in a variety of archaeological, anthropological, and curatorial projects in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Carolina and Tennessee. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Tennessee and her M.A. from the University of Alaska, Anchorage. Her research interests include the archaeology of women, indigenous and community participatory research, and the Peopling of the Americas. She worked in Northern and Northwestern Alaska in the communities of Utkiagviq, Point Hope, Wainwright, Kotzebue, and Deering, which gave her a familiarity with the Giddings and Anderson collections before joining the team at the Haffenreffer Museum.
