Bienvenidos, Bienvenue, Bem-vindo and Welcome to the official homepage of the Society for Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology (SLACA). The first chapter of SLACA was founded by the American Anthropological Association (AAA) in 1969 to advance the study of Latin American anthropology. In 2005, the Society's membership officially approved the adoption of "Caribbean" to the Society's name to reflect the connections between the Latin American and Caribbean regions.

SLACA provides a forum for discussion of current research, scholarly trends, and human rights concerns, as well as a space for interchange among scholars from and who work in Latin America and the Caribbean.
