Volume 14, Issue 1 (2016)We are pleased to publish this issue of the journal featuring articles from across the Amazonian geographical spectrum as well as a variety of international scholars with perspectives that bring greater depth to our understanding of lowland South America. Along this same line, we also introduce the first iteration of the Tipiti Forum, with short contributions on current topics and debates. We begin with contributions on the topic of uncontacted/isolated/voluntarily isolated peoples in some of the various political landscapes of lowland South America. Finally, we introduce another new section to the journal, the Commentary, featuring papers on various topics of interest to researching anthropologists. This issue features a contribution stemming from a Conversations in the Lobby session at our latest SALSA conference.
