Adding the Reality Back In; or Why You Can’t Talk About the History of Dedham, Massachusetts, Without Indigenous Peoples

Through an overview of centuries of history, this webinar examines the experiences of Indigenous nations and individuals in the historic and contemporary borders of what is now Dedham. Contextualized in town and regional history, and in larger themes of colonialism, warfare, kinship, and town identity, Indigenous experiences add to a more complete and complex understanding of Dedham’s overarching history.
