Turners Falls, Beaver Moon Gathering

November 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST

The Nolumbeka Project presents the Annual Beaver Moon Gathering in the Great Hall Saturday. Enjoy a presentation by Christine DeLucia, author of Memory Lands.

Knowledge, Sovereignty, and Freedom in the Eighteenth-Century Northeast, Christine DeLucia talk traces intertwined lives of Indigenous, African-American, Afro-Indigenous, and Euro-colonial people in the Northeast/New England across the eighteenth century.  The talk illuminates how individuals, families, and communities in the era of the American Revolution—and well before and after—conceptualized and pursued greater security, well-being, justice, and liberation.  In a time of tremendous upheaval, communities sought to maintain family integrity, homelands protection, personal and collective property, cultural self-determination, and other priorities.  Stories of particular books, houses, pathways, maps, images, and memory sites can bring us into fuller, and more complex, understandings of a past that remains powerful in the twenty-first century.  The talk also traces how communities use multiple ways of knowing and remembrance to cultivate relations among past, present, and future.

Free admission. All welcome!
