Pei-Lin Yu

Archaeologist for the US Army Corps of Engineers
Associate Professor of Anthropology at Boise State University

I come from a mixed race background of Taiwanese-American heritage. My Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology is from the University of New Mexico, and Masters and PhD degrees at Southern Methodist University. Beginning in 1988, I’ve worked as a federal archaeologist, museum curator, firefighter, tribal repatriation specialist, and federal science program coordinator. Agencies include the US Forest Service, Bureau of Reclamation, and the National Park Service as well as the Corps of Engineers. On the academic side I have taught archaeology at three universities including Boise State, mentored 32 graduate students, and published 20+ journal articles as well as seven books. My research centers on hunting and gathering lifeways, indigenous archaeology, Chinese mining communities of the American West, and climate change resiliency and adaptation in past and contemporary societies. I have lived as a hunter gatherer among the Pumé tribe of Venezuela and more recently did research among the Amis tribe of Taiwan. Currently, I work with representatives of Pacific Northwest Native American tribes on collaborative management, protection, and research for archaeological and cultural sites on federal lands.

Ahead of Her Time: Women’s Suffrage in Idaho chronicles the path-breaking journey to voting rights for women in Idaho.

Out of the Shadows Benedicte Wrensted and Jane Gay never knew each other. But both took images of Native Americans in Idaho at the turn of the 20th century.

Taking the Reins traces the remarkable paths of two Idaho women: Katherine Caroline Wilkins, one of the most successful horse-sellers in the United States. And May Arkwright Hutton, one of the richest women in the American West, who used her wealth to promote suffrage and later running for the Idaho Legislature.

We Sagebrush Folks uses new-found material to illuminate Annie Pike Greenwood’s life. She was a writer, teacher, mother and farmer’s wife who lived in south-central Idaho between 1913 and 1928, when the area had just opened to farming.

Each video is roughly 26:30 in length and can be watched on demand.
