    Hi Adam,
    This internship sounds like an amazing opportunity. Moving forward, do you have specific indigenous populations you’re interested in working in?

    What a great experience Adam! Thank you for sharing. Great tips for approaching internships and learning more about the host organizations. How did this experience shape your long-term professional goals beyond IS and Wooster?

    Thanks so much for your comment! In the future, I would like to continue working with indigenous populations in China and Taiwan, as they are often overlooked by Western discourses of indigeneity. More specifically, I’d love to delve deeper into the Tao tribe of Taiwan’s Orchid Island, as they hold a very unique and contentious relationship with the government.

    Your experience certainly shows how cool it is to combine areas of interest. Nice job – and we appreciate you using your knowledge to help other students find good opportunities.

    @Dr. Sobeck: thank you very much for the feedback. This experience solidified my interest in indigenous studies and will undoubtedly inform future research topics for higher education in Anthropology.
