We welcome back Connecticut State Archaeologist Dr. Bellantoni who will discuss his new book The Long Journeys Home: the Repatriations of Henry ‘Opukaha’ia and Albert Afraid of Hawk. Dr. Bellantoni oversaw the archaeological disinterment and forensic identifications in returning these men to their respective Native families. The Long Journeys Home chronicles these significant stories as examples of the wide-reaching impact of colonialism and the resurgence of Hawaiian and Lakota cultures. Copies of The Long Journeys Home will be available for sale and signing.
Nicholas F. Bellantoni is an associate adjunct professor in the anthropology department at the University of Connecticut and Emeritus Connecticut State Archaeologist at the Connecticut State Museum of Natural History.
