Once They’re Gone, They’re Gone for Good: Indigenous Shell Heaps, Climate Change, and Confronting Heritage Loss through Citizen Science
with Dr. Bonnie Newsom and Dr. Alice Kelley of the University of Maine.

Maine is home to roughly 2000 coastal Indigenous archaeological sites known as shell heaps or middens. These sites are rich heritage spaces that preserve a long record of past Indigenous lifeways and environments. In this presentation, Dr. Bonnie Newsom and Dr. Alice Kelley of the University of Maine will discuss these important places highlighting their cultural and research value. They will also discuss the University of Maine’s Midden Minders program—a citizen science initiative designed to monitor and record shell heaps threatened by climate change impacts.
