  • In November of 2017 ASRI will attend Anthropology Matters! Wednesday, November 29 – Sunday, December 3 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C. The theme for the 116th AAA Annual Meeting is a call across the field to unite in our diversity, to embrace difficulty, be vibrant messmates, and promote the relevance of what anthropology is and does. Anthropology is best at describing the past, exploring the present, predicting the future, and navigating the processes of being and becoming human.
  • September 22 and 23, 2017 ASRI will have a Meet and Greet event hosted at the Sikeston City Hall Council Chambers, 105 E. Center Street, Sikeston, Missouri on Friday, September 22, 2017 from 3:00 p.m.- 6:00 p.m.
  • January 10th, 2017 we will roll-out the long-awaited economic development business plan; many months of research have culminated into a document that represents an installation of “Jean Baptiste Point DeSable Delta Trails” enterprise ecotourism destinations to create permanent jobs through rural community revitalization.
  • ASRI is on track in preparation to submit our 2017 application Project ID: # LA-11850 Promiseland Heritage Economic and Training Plan. Title: Promiseland Heritage Development Project to the funding agency “Delta Regional Authority”.
  • ASRI gained traction into the cultural heritage industry resulting in ASRI’s innovative “Concourse Model” coupled with the revitalized historic enslaved burial grounds as the epicenter for economic growth and the anchor for community reimaging in 2016-17. Peer-review acceptance has canalized the organization into an untapped natural resource formed into an African American market. Consequently, we are planning to present the above Business Plan initiative to a convened world body of academia and technocrats in 2016.
  • September 14, 2015, we introduced Eco-Tourism Enterprise civic engagement forum at the University of Illinois at Chicago and informed the general public, elected officials, government agencies and academician planners what the future holds for ASRI and our plan for economic growth through agricultural development products for commercial exports resulting in sustained revenue streams.
  • In 2015, ASRI developed external affairs with a number of Institutions service programs, i.e., Small Business Development Centers and countries in neighboring Caribbean nations linked to “ASRI Delta Regional Concourse Model.” We are currently negotiating with targeted countries in the Caribbean basin to validate our partnership.
