Join us for the first webinar in the New Jersey’s Indigenous Voices series, a program of free virtual educational events that seek to facilitate a deeper and more accurate public understanding of Indigenous history and life in the region now known as New Jersey. Sharing the Continuing Story of Indigenous Peoples in New Jersey will address the history and continuity of tribal communities in the region and beyond.
Our featured speakers are: Heather Bruegl, Director of Cultural Affairs, Stockbridge Munsee Band of Mohican Indians; Claire Garland, Executive Director, Sand Hill Indian Historical Association; Rev. Dr. John Norwood, Principal Justice of the Tribal Supreme Court, Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation; and Dr. Maria De Freece Lawrence, Professor of Education, Rhode Island College. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Jameson Sweet, Assistant Professor of American Studies, Rutgers University-New Brunswick.
Promotional materials for the event were created by Nahi Design. This series was made possible with support from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
