About the Fund

On September 11, 2014, MEXRE signed an agreement to receive an endowment from the Estate of Betty J. Meggers and TARAXACUM.
The profits of this endowment will be used:

  • To promote and support the increase of knowledge of the Indigenous societies of South America, both past and present, through research in anthropology and related disciplines.
  • To promote collaboration among scholars, students and communities of diverse backgrounds of South America, Mexico, and the U.S.
  • To foster the dissemination of this knowledge by publication and other means, including but not limited to symposia, exhibitions, webpages, lectures, films, and videos.
