Abenaki History in the Monadnock Region- Teacher Workshop

This program is full.

Abenaki History in the Monadnock Region is a one-day teacher workshop, ideal for grade school and middle school educators who seek to expand their knowledge of Abenaki history and culture. Sessions are a mix of lectures and activities and focus on the region’s 13,000-year history including: archaeology and how Indigenous culture has evolved; interactions between Indigenous people and European settlers; Native connections to the land; ethnobotany; and, a contemporary look at Abenaki identity and culture.  The workshop will close with an introduction to free educational resources offered by the Historical Society of Cheshire County for classroom use.

This project was funded in part through a Community Project Grant from New Hampshire Humanities.
