Anthropologist On The Street

Jul 19, 2017

Archaeologist Dr. Lance Greene digs up life on a nineteenth century plantation in North Carolina, where Cherokees, European-Americans, and enslaved Africans lived and worked together. Dr. Greene pieces together archaeological data, historical documents, and fictional writings to provide insight into both how Cherokee were changing to attempt to fit in to European-American culture and the ways they were resisting it. Along the way we talk about indigeneity, culture, DNA, and why race is far more complicated than we think it is.
