About this product
- DescriptionA groundbreaking volume on the rich 13,000-plus-year history and culture of Connecticut's indigeus peoples More than 13,000 years ago, people settled on lands that w lie within the boundaries of the state of Connecticut. Leaving written records and scarce archaeological remains, these peoples and their communities have remained unkwn to all but a few archaeologists and other scholars. This pioneering book is the first to provide a full account of Connecticut's indigeus peoples, from the long-ago days of their arrival to the present day. Lucianne Lavin draws on exciting new archaeological and ethgraphic discoveries, interviews with Native Americans, rare documents including periodicals, archaeological reports, master's theses and doctoral dissertations, conference papers, newspapers, and government records, as well as her own ongoing archaeological and documentary research. She creates a fascinating and remarkably detailed portrait of indigeus peoples in deep historic times before European contact and of their changing lives during the past 400 years of colonial and state history. She also includes a short study of Native Americans in Connecticut in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. This book brings to light the richness and diversity of Connecticut's indigeus histories, corrects misinformation about the vanishing Connecticut Indian, and reveals the significant roles and contributions of Native Americans to modern-day Connecticut.
- Author BiographyLucianne Lavin is Director of Research and Collections at the Institute for American Indian Studies. She lives in northwestern Connecticut.
