August 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Tuesday, August 18
*Given current circumstances, events and programs are subject to change and cancellation. We highly recommend checking this program on our website for the latest information.
Lose yourself with Robert Goodby in an exploration of Abenaki history in New England. Review the archaeological evidence showing the Abenaki’s deep present in NH and understand the transition from then to now.
We hope this presentation allows you to understand the use of the land prior to the home settlers in the Ossipee Mountains, well before the Plants. We also hope to share information of the valued culture of the Abenakis.
*Registration is encouraged but not required. Knowing how many people will be attending allows us to better prepare for the evening.
