Connecticut's Indian Reservations: Rewriting Colonial Narratives Through Collaborative Field Archaeology

Today Native American reservations of Connecticut serve as emblems of community pride and identity, attesting to ancestors’ perseverance during tumultuous times and to dark days of colonial inequality, racism, and violence. Collaborative relationships between archaeologists and indigenous communities are beginning to repair a long-troubled relationship. They garner fresh perspectives on indigenous history and archaeology that are informed by oral tradition and contemporary indigenous values. Archaeological sites from this era allow new understandings of the rhythms of everyday life, including valuable information on vernacular architecture, subsistence, settlement patterns, and spirituality. As a whole, collaborative archaeological fieldwork complements and challenges what is already known from written and oral histories, filling in the gaps and—in may ways—rewriting colonial narratives.
