The Plymouth 400 Indigenous History Conference hosted by Bridgewater State University has been changed from a live conference to a series of virtual segments that will be free to those attending. Dates are October 3, 4, 18, 25, and November 1, 8, 15, 21, and 22, 2020. In its virtual form, the conference will be presented through lectures and panels which will be accessible at times when educators and students can access the information. Registration for the conference is still required and details will be provided soon. The Indigenous History Conference is sponsored by North Easton Bank.
The conference will address the legacy of colonization experienced by Wampanoag and other Native people in the (now) New England area. Specific details on conference sessions to come soon.
Speakers and presenters will include both Native and non-Native scholars and cultural experts, with the emphasis on the primacy of Native voice and the validity of these perspectives and insights on Indigenous people, history, and culture. The Conference will be recorded so that it may be prepared as a curriculum for classroom use at all levels.
The Indigenous History Conference is presented by the Plymouth 400 Wampanoag Advisory Committee and Bridgewater State University.
