Establishing connections between modern and historical Native communities can be challenging given the efforts of colonial and U.S. governments to erase Indian identity. This mini-symposium explores how oral histories and archaeological evidence forge the links often intentionally missing from the archive. Join archaeologists Julia A. King and Scott M. Strickland and Piscataway Conoy Tribal Chair Francis Gray as they describe making these links for the Piscataway and the importance of the American Indian Movement to these efforts.
