Following the talk, a group of local historian will present a panel discussion titled "Emerging Stories of This Land.” Panelists include Liz Coldwind Santana Kiser of Chaubunagungmaug Band of Nipmuck Indians, Chief Roger Longtoe Sheehan of Elnu Abeanaki, local historian Gary Sanderson, and Joe Graveline of the Northfield Historical Commission.

This event is sponsored by the Town of Montague and the National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program.

About the Battlefield Grant : An unprecedented consortium of historic commissions from 5 neighboring towns and 3 tribal historic preservation offices have partnered with the Town of Montague and the National Park Service Battlefield Protection Program to conduct a comprehensive study of the extent and context of the 1676 battle that was a turning point in the King Philip’s War. An additional purpose is to engage local officials, landowners and the interested public in effort to locate and encourage the protection of the battlefield. The project stems from a 2004 reconciliation ceremony between the Montague Board of Selectmen and several tribal dignitaries to commence a healing process that involves an exchange of actions to promote understanding about and between cultures.
