Lecture - Native American Life Along the Bay
Time & Location
About the Event
Long before the European settled along the shores of the Great Bay, established families and tribes had fished the waters, harvested the shell fish and hunted the well-maintained forests of the Piscataqua watershed. By researching literature, diaries, letters, deeds, and grants of land, presenter David Miller discovered several family groups who thrived in this area.
Mr. Miller has created a detailed map showing where the native villages were located, the Indian names for each village, and the Indian names for surrounding physical features including the rivers, lakes and mountains. He will be sharing his map, illustrated handouts, and a detailed bibliography.
