Shuar Health and Life History Project


The Shuar Health and Life History Project has been made possible through the generous funding of a number of federal granting agencies such as the National Science Foundation, private foundations (Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research & LSB Leakey Foundation), programs within our universities (University of Oregon, Yale University, Harvard University, CUNY-Queens College), and collaborating agencies from Ecuador. We have also worked closely with a number of research collaborators in the US, including Leda Cosmides and John Tooby from UCSB and Thomas McDade from Northwestern, who have helped to support the research.
