Quinnetukut: Our Homeland, Our History
November 13 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PMFree
In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, on Monday, November 13th at 6:30 PM the Ridgefield Library will present a fascinating lecture about the history of the state of Connecticut. Please register.
Much of what we learn about Connecticut’s past comes from a colonized perspective that has almost entirely left out the voices of Indigenous people who have called this land home for over 12,000 years. How knowledge about the past is preserved and passed down in different cultures affects how history is perceived.
In this presentation, led by Education Director Darlene Kascak, Schaghticoke Tribal Nation, participants will get a more complete and accurate view of the history of Connecticut that takes the perspectives of Native people into account.
