Associate Curator of North American Ethnography
Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology
Social anthropologist Castle McLaughlin is Associate Curator of Native American Ethnography at Harvard's Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, steward of the surviving Native American objects acquired by Lewis and Clark. Her book on that collection, Arts of Diplomacy, was published in 2003, before the grizzly claw necklace was "rediscovered" in the museum. She is currently co-curating an exhibit of Plains ledger drawings with Lakota artist Butch Thunder Hawk.
