What does Winnegance Mean? Wabanaki Place Names in Context
April 26, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Maine’s First Ship Spring Lecture Series
Joe Hall teaches colonial, American Indian, and environmental history at Bates College. He is currently researching the history of Wabanakis, Maine’s indigenous peoples. He is particularly interested in the ways that Wabanakis continued to cultivate ties to their homeland even as colonial peoples sought to dispossess them of it. In his lecture he will be speaking about the ways that Wabanaki place names offer some clues not only to how Wabanakis inhabited their homelands before colonists’ arrival but also how they continued to inhabit those lands in the midst of colonization.
Public welcome. Suggested donation $5.
