Guns and Roses: The Material Remains of Early Paniolo Camps on Mauna Kea.

Professor Peter Mills, Chair of the UH Hilo Anthropology Department, will give a presentation at the North Hawaii Education and Research Center in Honoka’a on Tuesday evening, September 13th at 7:00. The presentation is free and the public is invited. This is the first of the fall Evening Lecture Series at NHERC in Honoka’a.

Dr. Mills will discuss a decade of archaeological research in Humu`ula (eastern mid-slopes of Mauna Kea), where UH Hilo and the University of Nevada at Reno have been documenting early ranching sites.  In 2007, the crew discovered the remains of what is believed to be one of the first commercial ranching stations in Humu`ula, dating to the 1850s-1860s. Come find out how these discoveries are illuminating previously unknown details about the social fabric of early Hawaiian cowboy life.
