Mastering statistics relevant to Evolutionary Anthropology is often a learn-as-you-go process that takes plenty of time, practice, and discussion.  Remember that there is more to the topic of "statistics" than simply inference.  You identifying which results are "significant."  In addition to deciding which results are most meaningful and how they should be interpreted, you also need to be able to represent your data and results in a visually compelling way, and to present your methods in a way that another scientist could understand and even replicate your findings.
