Yankee Baleeiros: The Shared Legacy of Lusophone and Yankee Whalers


 Yankee Baleeiros celebrates the interwoven Luso-American stories of the Azorean, Cape Verdean, and Brazilian communities to the United States from early immigration in the 18th century through the latter half of the 20th century. Yankee Baleeiros 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 publication is the fourth in a series of books celebrating the art and artifacts from the Museum’s collection. This bi-lingual publication includes text in both English and Portuguese.
