The New Milford Historical Society & Museum will present a program with local author Dr. Lucianne Lavin Nov. 10 at 2 p.m.

Lavin will discuss her latest book, "Connecticut's Indigenous Peoples, What Archaeology, History, and Oral Traditions Teach Us about Their Communities and Cultures."

Lavin is director of research and collections at the Institute for American Indian Studies in Washington, and is a member of the state's Native American Heritage Advisory Council and editor of the journal of the Archaeological Society of Connecticut.

She is an anthropologist and archaeologist who has over 40 years of research and field experience in Northeastern archaeology and anthropology, including teaching, museum exhibits and curatorial work, cultural resource management, editorial work, and public relations.

The program will coincide with a new, permanent exhibit at the New Milford Historical Society entitled "New Milford's Pre-Colonial Peoples," which will be available for the public to view after the lecture.
