Words & Abenaki History and Places: Brattleboro Words Project Roundtable Discussion Series

Date & Time: 
Mar 8 2018 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm


The public is invited to join Peoples, Places, and the History of Words in Brattleboro, Vermont (Brattleboro Words Project) for its second Roundtable Discussion on Thursday, March 8, 2018 at 118 Elliot from 67 pm. This month, Leadership Team members Rich Holschuh (Vermont Commission for Native American Affairs) and Joe Rivers (Brattleboro Historical Society) will give a presentation and lead a discussion exploring indigenous Abenaki sites, experience, and use of their 12,000 year-old Algonquian dialect in the context of first contact with Europeans in the Brattleboro area, which they call Wantastegok.  Roundtable participants are invited to share their knowledge of Wantastegok, Abenaki history, and Algonquian language and enjoy native-inspired refreshments during this free program.  

The Brattleboro Words Project is a multi-year community research initiative backed by a National Endowment for the Humanities matching grant that works with schools and community members to produce walking, biking, and driving tours of the Brattleboro area, a book about Brattleboro’s publishing and printing history, and exhibits celebrating our area’s rich history of words.  Each second-Thursday of the month, The Roundtable Discussion Series will present research and open a discussion on a different, “words-related” site in the Brattleboro area. The public is invited to share stories and thoughts with our research teams and scholars, and contribute to  this unique community-wide effort. Visit www.BrattleboroWordsProject.org and www.facebook.com/BrattleboroWords/ for more information.
