October 26, 2017 - Alliance on the Northern Front: Native Nations in Northern “New England,” 1675-1678

7:30 pm (Berwick Academy)

 Abenaki scholar Dr. Lisa Brooks speaks about the northern front of King Philip’s War in Wabanaki country. New maps of “Native space” and littleknown historical documents reveal a very different view of both the war and the territory known as northern New England. Brooks demonstrates that the war did not end with the death of the Wampanoag leader King Philip in 1676, but rather with a process of Native alliance making and treaties between colonial authorities and Wabanaki sachems.
