Presenter: Dr. Lucianne Lavin

Dr. Lucianne Lavin, director of research and collections at the Institute for American Indian Studies, will launch the Frederick Lee Lectures with an examination of the history and cultures of Connecticut’s first peoples. She will trace 10,000 years of native American history,  beginning when Native Americans shared the land with mastodons. Lavin will discuss archaeological discoveries that have challenged old theories and reshaped traditional interpretations of tribal people. Her informative presentation will lay the groundwork for the series and explain how indigenous peoples have thrived due to strong tribal leadership and enduring socio-spiritual traditions.
