Keeping in Touch Via Social Media

The young Wauja, like young people everywhere, are using Facebook, emails, and other social media tools to stay in touch. Emi Ireland, an anthropologist who speaks Wauja and who has been in touch with the community since 1980, receives calls via Skype as well as emails from the Wauja on a regular basis in her home in suburban Washington, D.C.

The Wauja are very excited about the trip that is planned for January 2012, and are grateful to everyone who is helping to make the project a reality, including the many donors and supporters.
