The majority of misconceptions about Native American culture begin with basic misunderstandings of everyday life. In this lecture Dan Shears, Material Culture Advisor for the Nulhegan Abenaki Nation, will challenge misconceptions of Native American life, cultural production, and transcultural relationships tracing back to 17th century interactions with European settlers. Shears will discuss the correct meaning of wampum, the impact of trade goods on Indigenous peoples, among other generally held misconceptions.

Presented by Dan Shears, member, Nulhegan Abenaki Nation; Material Culture Adviso, Nulhegan Abenaki Nation Cultural and Historic Preservation Department
