Archaeology Panel

  • Abbe Museum 26 Mount Desert Street Bar Harbor, ME, 04609 United States (map)

If you're a fan of our Tea & Pops Archaeology program, we have some exciting news for you! This year the Abbe Museum has implemented its first ever Archaeological Advisory Committee with an impressive lineup of Native archaeologists and others working in the field. To commemorate this, we are foregoing our annual Tea & Pops event in October and will instead host an Archaeology Panel with a number of experts from our committee. Join us for an evening panel featuring four of the archaeologists participating in the Committee. We will discuss the future of archaeology and what is exciting and new to each of our panelists.

Panelists include:

  • Kristen Barnett (Aleut), Lecturer in Anthropology at Bates College
  • Dave Putnam, Lecturer of Science at the University of Maine at Presque Isle where he teaches Anthropology, Archaeology, Glacial Geology, and Climate Change
  • Paulette Steeves (Cree-Metis), Assistant Professor Indigenous anthropologist/archaeologist at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick
  • Larry Zimmerman, Professor of Anthropology & Museum Studies, Public Scholar of Native American Representation, and Adjunct Professor, Native American & Indigenous Studies (NAIS) at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis

The Archaeological Advisory Committee is an impressive lineup of Native archaeologists and others working in the field who will guide our archaeological research, collections management, and interpretation fully into a decolonizing framework. You can learn more about the committee over on the Abbe blog

This program is free and open to the public.
