Native People & the Land: A Historical Perspective
April 15, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
How did the Valley’s early peoples interact with the land, use its resources, and make it a place to call home? How have the Valley’s human inhabitants changed their thinking about the land over time? Find out at this special program with the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association’s museum educator, Kitty Lowenthal. From atop the Mt. Holyoke summit, you’ll get a unique vision of the landscape from the perspective of Native tribes that once lived along the banks of the Connecticut River. We’ll also talk about Native people’s early contact with the English and the changes in the landscape that accompanied increased English Settlement. And, we’ll reflect on the meaning of land ownership in a historical and cultural context.
