Dreyfus-Gamelon, Simone (1925- )

Simone Dreyfus-Gamelon (1925- ), the first French woman ethnologist to complete a long fieldwork in Amazonia after the Second World War, left her mark on the French ethnology community by actively participating in the structuring of research and teaching in the field of Amazonian, ethnological and ethnohistorical studies. Multiple sequences of her private and public life show her commitment to just causes, and even now to the Amerindian peoples.
