Kalapuya Archaeology: The Willamette Valley Cultural Record before 1850
The devastating effect of introduced diseases into the Willamette Valley after Euromerican contact left room for misrepresentation and poor understanding of Native Kalapuya life and culture before contact. This talk draws from both archaeological and ethnohistoric evidence to present a fuller view of Kalapuya culture prior to the “great mortality”. Dr. Connolly is the Director of Archaeological Research at the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History in Eugene since 1986.
