Native People & the Land: A Historical Perspective

April 15, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Autumn view of Mt Holyoke Range from Rattlesnake Knob

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.

Fee: $5 – $10 (sliding scale: pay what you choose at the event)

Limited to 25 participants, RSVP required.

Rain date: Saturday, April 29, 11 am
