ANC speaker asks for support

African Nation Congress repre-
sentative Shuping Coapoge described
South African apartheid to an audi-
ence of more than 60 people gathered
on the Diag yesterday for a rally to
honor political prisoners.
In a brief speech, Coapoge, a
member of the ANC's mission to
the United Nations, traced the his-
tory of South Africa's system from
1910, when the nation's constitution
declared inequality between Blacks
and whites, to the present day.
Coapoge described major political
milestones from the 1931 Civilized
Law and Labor Act, prohibiting
Blacks from legally organizing labor
unions, to the 1976 confrontation
between the South African Army and
school children.
Coapoge was the final speaker at
the event, sponsored by the Free
South Africa Coordinating Com-
mittee and the United Coalition
Against Racism.

Before the event, as an introduc-
tion to the speakers, LSA juniors
Renuka Uthappa and Cristina
Antworth danced to Peter Gabriel's
song "Biko," about the political
prisoner who was brutally tortured
and killed in South Africa in 1977.

A Michigan family was clearing
ground in their backyard when they
discovered a fire pit. University an-
thropologists surveyed the site and
found that the hearth, surrounded by
stone chips, was thousands of years
University anthropologists have
found that the state's "backyard" is a
cache of clues to its past. Ann Arbor
itself claims 30 to 40 known sites,
some as old as 7,000 years, said
John O'Shea, associate professor of
anthropology and associate curator
for the Great Lakes Range division
of the University's Museum of An-
"Before I came here, I had no idea
that Michigan had anything to of-
fer," said Dawn Haverstock, a third-
year graduate student in the depart-
ment of anthropology. Haverstock
had worked on sites in Mexico, but
came to the University to work on
her doctorate.
"There is an amazing wealth of
pottery here," she said.
Most of the city's sites are near
the flood plain of the Huron River,
while others are near smaller bodies
of water. Many Ann Arbor streets,
such as Liberty Street, are aligned on
old Indian roads, O'Shea said.
O'Shea said the museum has de-
veloped criteria for the city planning
department; as a free service, the
University will survey land before
building so a significant site is not
destroyed. In addition to five sites
outside the city limits, sites near
Alpena county have been uncovered
in the past four years.
In 1984, O'Shea said, a "large,
significant site" was discovered near

Briarwood Mall. A field team o f
University graduate students found a
campsite there, dating from A. D.
1000 to 1100. Excavation was done
by Michigan State University stu-
dents to avoid the appearance of
conflict of interest.
Under O'Shea's direction, the
museum is currently excavating six
sites in lower north-eastern Michi-
gan on Hubbard Lake. The project,
started in 1983, receives about
$50,000 from the National Science
Foundation. So far, the dig has un-
covered settlements of Algonquin
speakers, related to the Ottawa tribe.
While these date from A.D. 1200 to
1500, sites 8,000 years old have also
been found in the region.
Digs in Michigan usually turn up
broken pottery, clay smoking pipes,
chip-stone tools, and firecrack rock
used in earth ovens hundreds of years
"You're used to finding artifacts
every day," said Andy Darling, a
second-year graduate student in an-
thropology. The artifacts are returned
to the museum where they are cata-
logued and analyzed. Some become
part of the permanent collection,
which is used to identify and research
materials the come into the labora-
"The sites themselves are pretty
dense," Haverstock said. "Each
square meter has over 1,000 pieces
of pottery."
Yun Lee, a fourth-year graduate
student with a master's in history,
said one project he worked on in
Michigan had "two to three sites
each mile. It's amazing that so many
people lived there."
