A special message from AAA President Dominguez for colleagues and friends in Japan:
Dear friends and colleagues in the WCAA,
I am truly distressed, as you no doubt also are, by the devastation in Japan and the continued terrible nuclear disaster potential there. I want to send condolences and the warmest regards of concern and collegiality to the Japanese association, all of its members, their families, students, and friends.
In sympathy and friendship (and on behalf of many thousands of your colleagues),
Virginia R. Dominguez
President, American Anthropological Association
