“New Lights in the Dawnland”: An Audio Documentary

New Lights

About This Event

 

Join us at the Greenfield Public Library on Wednesday, February 28 at 5:30 pm for the audio documentary “New Lights in the Dawnland”,  presented by  Michael and Carrie Kline.

“New Lights in the Dawnland” is a two hour audio documentary based on five individually recorded voices recounting 13,000 years of Indigenous history in what is now Northfield, Massachusetts, leading up to the arrival of English colonists in the 17th Century and the impacts of colonialism that followed. Replete with tribal songs, flute and drum interludes and ambient sounds, this conversational telling of the story creates its own imagery, reflected by the voices interwoven throughout from Rich Holschuh, David Brule, Joe Graveline, Doug Harris and Elnu Abenaki Chief Roger Longtoe Sheehan.

This program, generously sponsored by the Friends of the Greenfield Public Library, is free and open to everyone.
