Dr. Hughes has been active in anthropology since 1968 and has traveled over much of North America in the interim. During most of his career, he has done contract archaeology, but his interests include matters of socialization and education and all facets of Native American culture and adaptation. His recent projects have included almost ten years of excavation and research at the Buried City sites in the Texas Panhandle and an ethnographic overview of the Pipestone National Monument in Minnesota, including original ethnographic fieldwork and review of historic, ethnographic, and ethnohistoric records about the sacred and profane uses of the pipestone and quarry area by Native Americans.
