With Lynette Mullen
Experience the story of Lucy Romero and other Native American women who faced unimaginable challenges during Humboldt County’s settlement period. A period filled with kidnapping, human trafficking, slavery, unbridled violence, and sanctioned murder. This class will honor those who lived, and died, in our “Indian Wars” and acknowledge that shameful time in our history.

Lynette Mullen is an independent project manager and local historian. Her accidental discovery of historic documents, which described the brutal murder of a young mother in the presence of her children in Arcata in 1862, fostered an obsession with the settlement period in Northern California. Her research has been shared in articles, presentations, a TedX talk and now this OLLI course.
