A Disappearing Country: Algonkian Life In The NortheastSaturday May/27/2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
A Disappearing Country: Algonkian Life In The Northeast offers a glimpse into the changes in Algonkian life (daily living, customs of war, adoption/captivity, alliances, friendships and marriages between Natives, Europeans and Africans) during the first half of the 18th century as the consequences of contact with new European neighbors in the Northeast rippled outward. Compare and examine traditional items such as pelts and daily objects made of stone, bone, wood and shell with those items acquired through trade: a set of trade axes, metal knives, blankets, jewelry, clay pipes and entirely different pelts. Program is Hands-On and Family-Friendly!
