An investigation of the 1731 murder of Father Juan Antonio Cantova using a combined archaeological and ethnohistoric approach contributes vital information about Micronesian island communities' abilities to resist missionary rivals to their authoritative structures. Missionary letters are integrated with archaeological data for an enriched understanding of Ulithian and Yapese agency and the motive for Cantova's murder.
