Connecticut’s Indigenous People

Print More

The Suffield Historical Society will meet Wednesday, October 20, 7 p.m., at the Suffield Senior Center for a program by Dr. Lucianne Lavin.

Connecticut’s indigenous communities have rich histories that date back thousands of years before the arrival of the Europeans. New England was not the “wilderness” described by early English colonists, but an environment managed to enhance plant and animal populations.

Dr. Lavin, Director of Research and Collections at the Institute of American Indian Studies, uses her 40 years in archeology and anthropology to bring folklore and sacred stories of the ancients, who built and managed this landscape, to life.

The meeting may change to Zoom. Please contact Art Sikes at 860-668-0414 at a date closer to the meeting for updated information.
