Join Midcoast Senior College for a FREE lecture on Zoom! MSC Summer Wisdom: Samoset and Indigenous-European Interactions at the beginning of the 17th Century.
Why was Samoset, a Sagamore of the Wawenock tribe in Maine, chosen to be the first indigenous person to make contact, even speaking in English, with the colonists at Plymouth Plantation in 1621? This lecture presents Samoset’s life in Pemaquid as coinciding with war, epidemics, and the clash of the Indigenous/European cultures.
Sponsored by Sunnybrook Senior Living Community in Brunswick.
Lecturer Jody Bachelder’s background is library work. She grew up in Pemaquid and is the author of Here First: Samoset and the Wawenock of Pemaquid, Maine. To register for this lecture, go to https://maine.zoom.us/ meeting/register/tZwtd-yhqjMoHtWorxMC0Yuzh2hWlMW1suVw.
