Friends and colleagues: The use of visual media in documenting the human
cultural legacy has grown rapidly in recent decades. We are pleased to
feature one of the early pacesetters of this approach in Anthropology Field
Notes 3, the latest video feature on our nonprofit streaming-media Web site,
The Archaeology Channel (http://www.archaeologychannel.org/).
In this series of interviews with today's news-makers, host Faith Haney of
Central Washington University explores cultural anthropology and
archaeology. In the third episode, taped on January 26, 2007, Faith visits
with anthropologist Dr. Karl Heider, of the University of South Carolina.
Dr. Heider is a film-maker and author and a pioneer of visual anthropology.
His research among the Dani people of New Guinea is documented in the famous
ethnographic film, Dead Birds. The interview closes with footage from his
1964 film, Dani Sweet Potatoes.
