The “Carrie Hunter-Tate Award” honors the memory of this former officer of the National Association of Student Anthropologists (NASA). Carrie energetically devoted her time and talents to NASA until her untimely death in 1995. To honor the spirit with which she dedicated herself to the profession of anthropology, NASA has established the “Carrie Hunter-Tate Award,” to be bestowed upon student anthropologists with similar enthusiasm for service to the profession.
