Franklin County’s First Peoples: History, Heritage, & Current Events

“If we deny a people's history, we deny that people's existence. If the voices of our ancestors are silenced, our history is silenced.”

The first peoples of our area left a 12,000-year legacy of living, loving, laughing, and dying. That legacy has been – and is still being – wiped out and denied, actively and passively. We will examine how inequities in cultural preservation have created social and economic injustice here in the valley and beyond.
Of Cherokee and Abenaki decent, presenter Joe Graveline has been working on Native American/Indian issues for over twenty years. President and Co-founder of the Nolumbeka Project, Joe specializes in bringing to light the unrepresented Indian side of New England history. He is active on environmental and social issues on a local, regional and national level. Learn more at
