Anthropology Program


Hannah Voorhees


Hannah is based at the Cody campus and teaches introductory courses in anthropology at Northwest College, including North American Indian Cultures.  An arctic researcher, her work focuses on traditional ecological knowledge and subsistence hunting in the context of climate change.  Outside of teaching, she works with tribal organizations in Alaska to document their observations of sea ice loss and its possible effects on wildlife. She focuses on the way in which the politics of hunting, indigeneity, and conservation are currently unfolding in the far North.

Originally from Alaska, Hannah studied anthropology and biology at Swarthmore College and earned her doctorate in anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania. Beyond academia, Hannah enjoys hiking and traveling to new places.
