What style manual should Anthro students use?

The American Anthropological Association follows the Chicago Manual of Style. In 2009, the AAA updated its own 9-page style guide supplement. However, the supplement is aimed more at editors of journal articles than students with term papers. Even in the supplemental guide, the AAA advises, except in some very special cases, "follow Chicago."
