Catherine Robbins

In 2011, Catherine (Codispoti) Robbins ’65 published All Indians Do Not Live in Teepees (or Casinos). The story begins with the repatriation of ancestral remains to the Pueblo and Pecos peoples. These events, along with subsequent repatriations, accelerated similar movements across many Native American communities. Robbins traces this restorative effect in areas such as economic development, urbanization, the arts and sciences, and health care. She is now working on a second project Nobody Travels South of Rome, a book about Calabria.
