The Forgotten Nations: Native Tribes of New England
Thursday, October 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Medford Public Library is co-sponsoring an online event, “The Forgotten Nations: Native Tribes of New England,” led by Heather Bruegl, an independent Indigenous consultant and historian. Colonization happened early on in the New England area, as early as 1609, so many Native Nations and tribal histories were lost. Learn about the Nations that called this land home, where they are now and the thriving communities keeping their histories alive. Bruegel is a citizen of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin and a first line descendent Stockbridge Munsee. She is the former Director of Education at Forge Project and travels frequently to present on Native American history, including policy and activism.
Co-sponsored by the Friends of the Tewksbury Library. Register through the Medford library’s online calendar to receive the Zoom link.
