Christine DeLucia talks about place, heritage & caretaking in Native & colonial New England

Williams College History Professor Christine DeLucia, speaking to a capacity crowd at the Little Compton Community Center on July 25, 2019, described “the confluence of longstanding Native places with colonial ones and its influence on shaping how we remember and honor it, inviting us into a better/greater understanding and acknowledgement of its complex and challenging history.” Sponsored by the Sakonnet Preservation Association, Professor DeLucia’s talk referenced her book, Memory Lands, “an enlightening work that draws from oral traditions, archival traces, material and visual culture, archaeology, literature, and environmental studies, [that] reassesses the nature and enduring legacies of a watershed historical event.” [Yale University Press].
