Welcome! The primary purposes of the Northwest Anthropological Association are to encourage the exchange of ideas and information among members of the anthropological community and to coordinate the annual Northwest Anthropological Conference (NWAC).
Each year, a different northwest institution or organization hosts the NWAC. The 2016 conference will be held in Tacoma, Washington and the 2017 conference will be held in Spokane, Washington. Stay tuned for more information.
