EventKeeper : Tell a Friend
Before the Europeans Arrived... and After

Thursday March 25, 2021
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM


Maynard author and historian David Mark will speak about the Native American presence before and after the arrival of European colonists.

Our region was inhabited by the Nipmucs. Wherever Europeans arrived, within a generation entire cultures and populations were nearly wiped out by disease, displacement and war. Transfer of land from remnant native populations to English settlers was a combination of sale, forced sale and outright taking. During King Philip’s War non-combatant Nipmuc suspected of collaborating with the Wampanoag who were leading attacks against the colonists were relocated to Deer Island, in Boston Harbor. Many died from harsh conditions there.

Today, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts recognizes the present-day Nipmucs as constituting a group of some five hundred members living in and around Worcester.
