Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History
The Ache are an indigenous people native to present-day Paraguay in South America. Until very recently, the Ache were full-time nomadic foragers, subsisting on plants and animals from the surrounding forest. Today the Ache are mostly settled on communal farms and government reservations, and face many of the same diet and health issues associated with the global obesity epidemic. In this talk, Dr. Richard Bribiescas will discuss his field research among the Ache people, including unique findings about hormones related to appetite that can potentially help us address questions about the evolution of the human diet.

The mission of the Peabody Museum is to serve Yale University by advancing our understanding of earth’s history through geological, biological, and anthropological research, and by communicating the results of this research to the widest possible audience through publication, exhibition, and educational programs.Fundamental to this mission is stewardship of the museum’s rich collections, which provide a remarkable record of the history of the earth, its life, and its cultures. Conservation, augmentation and use of these collections become increasingly urgent as modern threats to the diversity of life and culture continue to intensify.
