Brown-Bag: Joseph Hall: "Making Home: Wabanaki and English Claims to Place, 1600-1830"
This informal presentation and Q&A features Prof. Joseph Hall (Bates College) who will discuss his latest project. At the beginning of the seventeenth century, Wabanakis defined their claims to territory in terms of networks among places. English colonists redefined the region with property defined as polygons on the landscape. Understanding how both groups constructed ideas of property and homeland can help explain how colonists erased Indigenous residents in what became western Maine. It also shows how Wabanakis retained ties to the region.
