Digging into Native History in NH

Abenaki history has been reduced to near-invisibility as a result of conquest, a conquering culture that placed little value on the Indian experience, and a strategy of self-preservation that required many  Abenaki to go "underground," concealing their true identities for generations to avoid discrimination and persecution. Professor Robert Goodby reveals archaeological evidence that shows their deep presence here, inches below the earth's surface.

Robert Goodby is Professor of Anthropology at Franklin Pierce University. He earned his PhD in anthropology from Brown University and has over thirty years of experience excavating Native American archaeological sites in New England. He is a past president of the New Hampshire Archeological Society, a former Trustee of the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum, and served on the New Hampshire Commission on Native American Affairs.To reserve a copy of his book, click here.
