Wade Davis, MOA’s newest research associate, is an acclaimed Canadian ethnographer best known for his work among indigenous societies worldwide and his efforts to advance global awareness of cultures and ecosystems at risk. Davis has served as National Geographic Society’s Explorer-in-residence since 1999, and is the author of several best-selling books, including The Serpent and the Rainbow, and Into the Silence, which won the 2012 Samuel Johnson Prize, one of the world’s top non-fiction prizes. “Wade has quickly proven himself a passionate MOA supporter and his dedication to cultural and ecological sustainability promises to help strengthen both our research and exhibition programs,” says MOA Director Anthony Shelton. MOA members are invited to enjoy this exclusive opportunity to hear Davis present in the Michael M Ames Theatre, and then join him for an intimate reception in MOA’s beautiful Haida House. Tickets are required in advance. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
