Natick and the Memoryscapes of King Philip’s War: New Approaches to Native and Colonial New England Histories and Places with Christine DeLucia, Assistant Professor of History at Williams College and author of the book, Memory Lands, published by Yale University Press (Jan. 2018).
The seventeenth-century Indigenous resistance movement and colonial conflict known as King Philip’s War (1675-1678) shaped the region around Natick and Boston Harbor in important ways. This presentation revisits Native American and colonial encounters before, during, and after this pivotal period, examining how and why diverse communities pursued diplomacy, peacemaking, and violence at different points.
This talk invites conversation about how the past continues to matter in the present and the opportunities, as well as challenges related to heritage, preservation, and care taking of meaningful lands and waters.
This event is co-sponsored with the Natick Historical Society. It is FREE and open to the public.
