Educational Program: The Susquehannocks
February 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Susquehannocks: Land, Identity and Regional History
The Susquehannocks built the largest Indigenous settlements in this region. They cleared land and farmed on a large scale, aided by excellent local growing conditions and the Susquehanna River as a transportation and communication highway. They traded and conducted diplomacy with Swedish and English colonists and other Native Americans before Pennsylvania was chartered. Even today, some area residents have strong family traditions of descent from these farmers, builders and warriors.
In this free educational program, Dr. Tanya Kevorkian (Associate Professor of History at Millersville University) surveys the history of the Susquehannocks from their formation in the 1500s through their heyday in the early to mid-1600s, crisis in the later 1600s, to echoes in the present day.
