About the Event

The New Ipswich Historcial Society presents Dr. Robert Goodby who is a professor of Anthropology at Franklin Pierce University in Rindge. Come visit us at the New Ipswich Library as Dr. Goodby talks about the history of the Abenaki's here in New Hampshire. 

Abenaki history has been reduced to near-invisibility as a result of conquest, a conquering culture that placed little value on the Indian experience, and a strategy of self-preservation that required many Abenaki to go "underground," concealing their true identities for generations to avoid discrimination and persecution. Robert Goodby reveals archaeological evidence that shows their deep presence here, inches below the earth's surface.
