Abenaki history remains virtually hidden as a result of culture clashes and circumstances that forced the Abenaki to go “underground”. Unfortunately, their true identities have been concealed for generations to avoid discrimination and persecution. On Tuesday, July 16th at 6:30pm, our guest from the NH Humanities Council, Robert Goodby, will reveal archaeological evidence that shows their deep presence here, inches below the Earth’s surface.
Please register for this program at our online calendar or by calling 497-2102.
This event is part of our Groundbreaking Reads Summer Reading Program for adults, running through August 23rd. The program Digging Into Native History in New Hampshire is sponsored by a grant from the NH Humanities Council. If you have any questions, please contact Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 497-2102.
