Survivance Stories: Indigenous Struggle, Resistance, and Innovation.

As Indigenous peoples of New England approach the anniversary of 400 years of settler colonial disruption (in 2020), we see this as a moment to take a decolonial approach to this anniversary and reflect upon—and celebrate—how indigenous peoples everywhere have struggled, resisted, and innovated to ensure the survivance of themselves and their lifeways.

Conflict, Resistance, and Legacies: Revisiting King Philip’s War

Sat, Apr 28 2018 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm
Location: 
Deerfield Academy Garonzik Auditorium

Three historians offer groundbreaking reinterpretations of the 17th-century conflict later remembered as “King Philip’s War.” Lisa Brooks (Amherst College), Christine DeLucia (Mount Holyoke College), and Neal Salisbury (Smith College, Emeritus) will share new evidence and perspectives that shed fresh light on the origins, nature, and persistent powerful legacies of one of the most devastating wars in North American history.  Their work pays special attention to Indigenous homelands, kinship networks, intellectual traditions, and their complex intersections with Euro-American histories and communities in New England. The afternoon will begin with individual presentations by each author, followed by a moderated panel discussion that includes audience Q & A, and will conclude with book signing.
