For the HMSC Connects! Podcast this week, host Jennifer Berglund sits down with Jenny Carballo, an archaeologist and researcher at the Peabody Museum. Jenny is working on a refresh of the museum’s Encounters gallery to highlight the continuity and resilience of Indigenous cultures in the Americas. Jenny also elaborates on her interesting journey into her field including the rewarding work she has done at Copán, Honduras, and Mexico.


“The gallery opened in 1993…and was designed to mark the 500-year anniversary of Columbus ‘arriving’ to the Americas in 1492,” she says. “We want to shift the focus away from thinking of that one encounter as being the defining moment for all of the Indigenous Americas.”
