Changing Views: Indigenous Textiles of the Northeast
This program is part of The Hopkinton Historical Society’s 2019 summer exhibit and series of programming, Changing Views: Relations Between Hopkinton's Early Settlers and Native Americans. The exhibit and programs will look at the history of Native American and Euro-colonial cultural clashes in Hopkinton, how the perception of Native Americans has changed, and examine both the differences between the two cultures and the connections to be made between their shared past.
Vera Longtoe Sheehan will lead a lively discussion about ancient Abenaki textile traditions that persist into modern times. Sheehan will draw on her independent research and her family traditions using regional plants to make clothing and bags.
Free and open to the public.
