Digging Into Native History in New Hampshire
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 identities for generations to avoid discrimination and persecution. Robert Goodby reveals archaeological evidence that shows their deep presence here, inches below the earth's surface. THIS PROGRAM IS HELD IN CONJUNCTION WITH AN EXHIBIT TITLED "TWO SIDES OF THE COIN: NATIVE AMERICAN: EUROPEAN SETTLER'S APPROACH TO LAND & RESOURCES." THE EXHIBIT WILL OPEN MAY 2 AND RUNS THROUGH OCTOBER 14 AT THE HORATIO COLONY HOUSE MUSEUM.
