Presented by Christoph Strobel, Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and the author of “Native Americans of New England,” this talk and discussion explores the history of Native Americans in New England. While we will not turn a blind eye to the impact that colonization, dispossession, and racism had on the story of indigenous peoples in the region, we will also explore Native American resistance, adaptation, and survival under often harsh and unfavorable circumstances. Moreover, we will examine some of the colonial legacies that still shape the views and (mis-) perceptions about Indigenous peoples to this day. Co-sponsored with the Wellesley Free Library.
