A Day in the Life of our Native American Ancestors

  • McLaughlin Auditorium, Gould Academy 39 Church Street Bethel, ME (map)

At the dawn of Maine's history, more than a dozen Indian tribes occupied the land west of the Kennebec River. Today, they're all gone and Maine's remaining four tribes are all in eastern Maine. Find out why. From Farmington, Canton and Auburn to Norridgewock, Pemaquid, York, and Fryeburg, the White Man's presence profoundly affected Maine's first Americans.  Peter Stowell, a Bethel native, will reconstruct their whereabouts and explain how they got caught between warring European forces.
