South American Indian Studies
Kenneth M. Kensinger, Series Editor
South American Indian Studies (SAIS) originally appeared in five print issues, published at irregular intervals from 1993 to 1998 by Bennington College. Kenneth M. Kensinger served as series editor. Like Working Papers on South American Indians, the publication of SAIS was related to Kensinger’s hosting of the lowland South Americanist summer meetings at Bennington College. Kensinger dedicated energy and enthusiasm to the task of facilitating the flow of information among lowland specialists. The Bennington meetings were one approach to this goal; the publication of WPSAI and SAIS was another. SAIS published mostly papers presented at sessions of the American Anthropological Association conference, where there was always at least one session dedicated to lowland South America. Papers presented at the Bennington meetings were also published in SAIS.
