ATHOL — Robin Shtulman invites the public to the Athol Public Library on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. to explore the history of Native Americans in New England in a program titled, “Native Americans of New England: History, Colonial Legacies and Survival.”

“While we will not turn a blind eye to the impact that colonization, dispossession, and racism had on the story of Indigenous peoples in the region, we will also explore Native American resistance, adaptation, and survival under often harsh and unfavorable circumstances,” Shtulman said in a press release. “Moreover, we will examine some of the colonial legacies that still shape the views and (mis-) perceptions about Indigenous peoples to this day.”

Presenter Christoph Strobel is professor of history at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. He is the author of Native Americans of New England, The Global Atlantic: 1400–1900, The Testing Grounds of Modern Empire, and, co-author with Alice Nash, of Daily Life of Native Americans from Post-Columbian through Nineteenth-Century America. Christoph has also published three books on immigration and his scholarly essays appear in many academic journals and in various edited collections

Free and open to the public.

Made possible with support of the Friends of the Athol Public Library.
