Tyringham, MA–Bidwell House History Talk- Frenemies: Relationships between European colonists and Mohicans in 18th Century New England @ Tyringham Union Church
Jul 21 @ 10:00 am

Join Judy Putnam Hartley, Stockbridge Munsee Mohican tribal elder, as she discusses the “friendly” Indians who encountered and fed  Henry Hudson in 1609. By the time the Mohicans moved to Stockbridge in the 1730s they had a history of navigating European interactions. The Mohicans willingly served alongside the Colonists in wartime, yet the failure of English-Mohican shared governance in Stockbridge and unsatisfactory court petitions regarding land disputes repeatedly called into question whether the relationship was one of friends, enemies or both? Ms. Hartley will share some of her ancestors’ own words in reflecting on these encounters.

Members: $10. Non-members: $15.
