We Are the Land: The Power of Place in Indigenous Life

6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Central Library in Copley Square

Description

Join us for a discussion with Lance Young (Eagle Wolf), sachem of the Nemasket Nation and moderator Lori Rogers-Stokes.

Land for the English settlers who arrived here in the 17th century was something to be farmed, fenced, bought, and sold. For New England's Native people, land was more than home: the land was part of them and they were part of the land. Lance Young, sachem of the Nemasket Nation, explores the profound differences in colonial and Indigenous views of land and explains the fundamental importance of place.

Lance Young (Eagle Wolf) is the chief sachem of the Nemasket Nation, Wolf Clan, and chairman of the Nemasket Tribal Council. He is a 10th generation great-grandson of the squaw sachem Aime, daughter of the chief sachem Ousemequin Massasoit of the Pokanoket, father of Metacom King Philip. He is the Director of Marketing for a technology consulting firm.

This program is being co-presented by the Partnership of Historic Bostons.
