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.
