With help from a generous grant by New Hampshire Humanities, approved by the City Council on Wednesday, the city has launched an initiative to help better understand and appreciate the history of the indigenous peoples who were here in what is now called Dover, thousands of years before the first European settlers. In addition to new online resources and land acknowledgement plaques at city facilities, special presentations and events are planned to coincide with Indigenous Peoples Month in October. On Wednesday, Oct. 5, at 5:30 p.m., the flag of the Cowasuck Band of the Pennacook-Abenaki People will be raised during a ceremony at City Hall. The flag raising will be followed by a presentation hosted by the Dover Public Library and featuring Native American storyteller Anne Jennison at 6:30 p.m.
