Scouts and Soldiers: Native Americans in the colonial militias and wars; and A disappearing country; Algonkian life in the northeast in the 18th century.

Saturday, October 7 at 1:00pm - Discover the extent of Native American involvement in the military and militia during the colonial wars of the 18th century (including the American Revolution) while glimpsing the seismic changes impacting native life (daily living, customs of war, adoption/captivity, alliances, friendships and marriages between Natives, Europeans and African). The rising fur trade, persistent conversion efforts from Christian missionaries, epidemic disease and forced removal from tribal lands changed the balance of Native American life forever even as further colonial wars raged on and Europeans gained control of the continent.
