On December 11, 2021 Cornell anthropologists and long-term ANHS members David Holmberg and Kathryn March received the 2021 Sir Edmund Hillary Mountain Legacy Medal. They received the Hillary Medal for their many decades of friendship and assistance to Nepal, and for their leadership in educational exchange programs. Professors Holmberg and March carried out field work among the Tamang of Nepal for more than forty years, documenting and preserving customs and beliefs. After the 2015 earthquakes, they raised thousands of dollars to help their Tamang friends rebuild their villages. Their achievements on behalf of highland communities of Nepal, and of the country itself, are truly exemplary.”
