Yankee Baleeiros: The Shared Legacy of Lusophone and Yankee Whalers


 This bi-lingual book celebrates the interwoven Luso-American stories of the Azorean, Cape Verdean, and Brazilian communities from early immigration to the U.S. in the 18th century through the latter half of the 20th century. It enhances and reframes the meaning of becoming American amidst the social construction of unjust racial politics, the strength of community identity, and importance of cultural innovation.

This 68-page (half in English and half in Portuguese), softcover book is number 4 in the Museum's collections catalog series. Limited-edition hard cover copies signed by the author are available.
