Sometimes historical narratives tend to shape how we view history. Sometimes it can just be a title that shapes the narrative. When James Fenimore Cooper wrote “Last of the Mohicans” he created a narrative that has lasted centuries. But it was a false narrative. The Mohican Nation is alive and well today with a rich history that spans before colonization – the land that today we call Williamstown is part of their ancestral homelands. Join Heather Bruegl, Director of Education at Forge Project, to learn about who the Stockbridge-Munsee Community is and how they are not the Last of the Mohicans.
Registrants will receive an email with a private Zoom link to this live virtual program before the event. We will also be broadcasting via Facebook Live: https://www.facebook.com/clarkartinstitute/live
