Our Beloved Kin: A New History of King Philip’s War

Author and Amherst College professor Dr. Lisa Brooks tells the multi-faceted story of this area, giving a deeper understanding of Native history and place, focusing on the area around Ashuelot, an important space in King Philip’s War and in Mary Rowlandson’s captivity narrative.

This event is part of a series of 2018 programs in the "Two Sides of the Coin: Native American & Early Colonists Cultural Clashes" project, presented by the Horatio Colony Museum with support from a New Hampshire Humanities Community Project Grant. The project is designed to broaden public awareness about the roles of Native indigenous people in our region’s history, and paint a clearer picture of war, captivity, and Native resistance.
