NEH Summer Institute: Native Americans of New England: A Historical Overview

A three-week institute sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities for twenty-five school teachers on the history of Native Americans in New England. The Institute examined the history of Native American peoples in New England through a rigorous, interdisciplinary humanities program that included primary source analysis, museum visits, and conversations with Native and non-Native guest presenters. Concepts such as culture, identity, citizenship, and sovereignty take on new meanings when we examine the struggles and achievements of indigenous peoples.
