Rename it “Ishi Hall”

So UC Berkeley recently “unnamed” Kroeber Hall until they find a new name for it. I don’t think there’s any question, though, that if we’re going to honor anyone in that sad affair, it should be Ishi. That is, after all, the real job of contemporary anthropologists. And if Berkeley wants to be more “inclusive”, then they can start by acknowledging the fact that the campus resides on occupied land.
