The Captain and "the Cannibal"

An Epic Story of Exploration, Kidnapping, and the Broadway Stage

James Fairhead

In 1830 the celebrated Captain Morrell kidnapped Dako, a young nobleman from an island off New Guinea, then took him to America and exhibited him as a ‘cannibal’. In this reconstruction of the two men’s interlaced odysseys, an anthropologist delves into a mass of archival material and examines the worldviews of the islanders and Americans, neither of whom initially viewed the other as entirely human.
