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.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
