Native American communities of the Northeast maintained deep traditions of sheltering relations and refugees during times of conflict. Dr. Christine DeLucia brings to light some important yet overlooked dimensions of Indigenous enslavement and unfreedom in colonial New England and the Atlantic World. Highlighting landscapes that played powerful roles in processes of captivity and in bids for liberation and security, she weaves together documentary sources with other forms of knowledge, including material culture objects and oral traditions.
First Parish Federated Church
The Old Berwick Historical Society is partnering with the church for a turkey supper on Saturday, April 21. We provide volunteers the day of the supper, plus an assortment of desserts. We then split the proceeds of the supper with the church. The church is located at 150 Main St, South Berwick. YOU CAN HELP -- and have a fun evening!
