NLCHS Second Sunday with Dr. Jason Mancini; Sunday, February, 9, 2014

Sunday  4:00 pm to

"Preserved on the Mighty Waters:" The Indian Mariners Project at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum, presented by Dr. Jason Mancini, will be the "Second Sunday" program for the New London County Historical Society, 9 February at 4 pm. Mancini will share his extensive research into the participation of Indian men in various forms of maritime labor - from shipbuilding to whaling. This talk focuses on the hundreds of Indians that found work in the customs district of New London and explores their "roots" and "routes," the global social networks they formed, and their traveling histories from the objects they collected and stories they told. One example, on a recent research trip to the Hawaii State Archives he located two Pequot and five Shinnecock whalemen in Honolulu in the 1860s.
