In this Introduction to our multi-part video series, narrator David Brule (Nehantic), presents a brief overview of the Indigenous peoples who have lived in and traveled through the Connecticut River Valley of western Massachusetts for thousands of years.
FROM THE FILM
“Much has been written about the last of the Indigenous people in the Northeast….that they are gone and extinct. This is not true. Native people had children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Their spirits, their memory, and their descendants are here living among us.”
— David Brule (Nehantic)
