In the ever increasing globalization of our planet, more and more people are finding themselves coming into contact with cultures other than their own.  Anthropologists realize that the information they present to the global community has a profound impact on one cultures view of another.  Hence, the information we present here gives insight into how anthropologists have an ethical responsibility in presenting material to the public, those they research, and the role of public activism by anthropologists.  We generated information on ethics in public anthropology by conducting interviews with a variety of anthropologists and through literature reviews.  We also, generated data by producing a survey to understand the degree of comprehension of those that participated in the survey had of common anthropological terms.
