Join us for a special historical lecture, generously sponsored by NH Humanities, in celebration of Hooksett's Bicentennial year!
Digging into Native History in New Hampshire, with Robert Goodby, Professor of Anthropology at Franklin Pierce University
Abenaki history has been reduced to near-invisibility as a result of conquest, a conquering culture that placed little value on the Indian experience, and a strategy of self-preservation that required many Abenaki to go "underground," concealing their true identifities for generations to avoid discrimination and persecution. The presenter reveals archeaological evidence that shows their deep presence there, inches below the earth's surface.
This event will be VIRTUAL due to the possibility of weather/time of year. All are welcome; please join us by Zoom!
