Sigrid Khera

Sigrid Khera (1934–1984) was born in Vienna, Austria. After coming to the United States she got a position as assistant professor in the Anthropology Department at Arizona State University in Tempe. When she was newly arrived at ASU, a letter dropped into her hands that a Yavapai elder wanted his tribe’s history written as they themselves knew it. In March 1974 Sigrid Khera started working with Mike Harrison (1886–1983) and John Williams (1904–1983), two Yavapai elders from the Fort McDowell reservation in Arizona. When Sigrid Khera died in 1984, she left behind a completed manuscript, Oral History of the Yavapai.
