Pfeiffer to receive Honorary Degree from The University of New Mexico :: The University of New Mexico


Pfeiffer to receive Honorary Degree from The University of New Mexico :: The University of New Mexico: Associate Professor Emerita Anita Bradley Pfeiffer is the recipient of one of three 2016 honorary degrees presented by The University of New Mexico. Other recipients include V.B. Price and Polly Schaafsma. Pfeiffer will receive a Doctor of Humane Letters. The recipients will be recognized during UNM’s undergraduate commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 14 at WisePies Arena aka The Pit. The ceremony begins at 9 a.m.

A member of the Navajo Nation, Pfeiffer was born in the northern Arizona town of Kayenta, long considered to have “the most remote post office in the continental U.S.” Her early education consisted of both Western education and Traditional Navajo education, which she learned from her parents. It likely was this very early nurturing in both Western English and Traditional Navajo language, knowledge, and cultural practices that sparked in Pfeiffer the unquenched commitment and passion for true community-based, bilingual and bicultural Navajo education.
