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.

The World Affairs Council of New Hampshire, NH Civics, the NH Chapter of the Fulbright Association, the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership, and Public Service, the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, and NH Humanities are honored to host Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, Jake Sullivan, for a moderated conversation on revitalizing democracy at home and abroad.
As the lines between global and domestic affairs continue to blur, an informed and engaged public is vital to a strong and vibrant democracy. With the United States facing many of the same headwinds as other countries around the world, it is important for a focused and informed approach to tackling these issues, both foreign and domestic. Through a moderated conversation, led by Dr. Melinda Negron-Gonzales, Chair of Security Studies at UNH Manchester, APNSA Sullivan will outline the challenges that democracy faces and present solutions, which everyone can take part in. For the United States to be the “Shining City on the Hill”, it must reflect democratic values at both home and abroad.
