The Society for the Anthropology of Lowland South America (SALSA) is an independent professional association for anthropologists specializing in lowland regions of South America. SALSA’s main goals are to foster sound and ethical research and to promote the education of students and the general public on issues that we study.
SALSA is an international society, bringing together specialists who live in Latin America, Europe, North America, and elsewhere. It seeks to facilitate connections and develop exchanges of information among them, disseminate original scholarship of high quality, and encourage students to learn about and carry out research in this region. SALSA has a voting membership with an elected board of directors, by-laws, and official status as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.
The SALSA Solidarity Fund assists SALSA’s efforts to continue supporting Indigenous and traditional peoples’ participation in future SALSA conferences, make student awards, foster other activities and explore new possibilities that support our goals of furthering the anthropology of Lowland South America through intellectual and collegial exchange.
