Peopling of the Americas: Who Came First & How Does Oregon Fit In

DATE: April 13, 2011
TIME: 10:30 – 11:30am
PRESENTER: Alison T. Stenger, Ph.D.

We learned in school that the America’s were populated by Asians who walked over the Bering Land Bridge. Science, however, has very strong evidence to the contrary. Who, then, were the very first Americans? How did they get here, did they actually come to Oregon, and what is the relationship between these early people and the megafauna with which they shared the Environment?  Alison Stenger, is an archaeologist, author, and the Director of Research for the Institute for Archaeological Studies in Portland.
