About

New Hampshire’s historical narrative, like most American historical literature, tends to neglect the significance and complexities of the land’s Indigenous cultures. These narratives often leave readers with the impression that North America was sparsely inhabited before European arrival, and that the land’s Indigenous inhabitants have since disappeared. Although Indigenous peoples have suffered profound injustices from initial European contact until now, Indigenous cultures prevail, and so do their histories. A collaboration between the University of New Hampshire’s Anthropology Department, and Paul and Denise Pouliot of the Cowasuck Band of the Pennacook Abenaki People, this long-term project intends to reframe New Hampshire’s history from an Indigenous perspective.
