Instead, ASU tricked them into bleeding for academia. By Paul Rubin Published on May 27, 2004 Carletta Tilousi got a phone call in March 2003 that would not only change her life, but that of every person in her tribe. She's a member of the Havasupai, a small Indian nation in northern Arizona with about 650 members. Most of the tribe lives in Supai, a picturesque village tucked away on the floor of the western Grand Canyon. The call came from John Martin, a longtime anthropology professor at Arizona State University who had gained the tribe's trust, as much as any white person can. The tribe had allowed Martin in its midst because members thought he could help them with their diabetes epidemic. After spending more than a year in Supai in the early 1960s, he published his doctoral dissertation on the tribe at the University of Chicago. Tilousi says Martin told her that a student was about to defend another dissertation on a subject that would be of interest to her. "John said that the guy had used our tribal blood in his research," she recalls. "I said, 'What?!'" Her curiosity piqued, Tilousi attended the presentation at ASU.
