Dover in the 17th Century: Abenaki Life and History from an Indigenous Perspective
The February lecture features Paul and Denise Pouliot, who discuss the myths, misconceptions, food-ways, lifeways, and history of an acculturated and assimilated Indigenous People, and offer a contemporary analysis of being a descendant of those ancient People. The Pouliots address important background information from paleo times up to colonial contact and end with the consequences of colonial encroachment and violence that led to King Philip’s War, which had a major impact on colonial Dover. The lecture is part of the yearlong lecture series hosted by Dover400.
