The Captive Children of Deerfield: Three Nations at War

Live Event
October 16, 2022: 2:00 pm

Presenter Donna Toneatti of the Abenaki Nation of Missisquoi explores from the three angles of her own family history—French, English, and Native American—the Deerfield Massacre, which took place during the 1704 “Queen Anne’s War.” If you descend from Franco-Americans in Vermont, this story may be yours as well!

About the Fall Festival 2022

Join us in October during National Arts and Humanities Month for our Where We Land Fall Festival, a remix of our Annual Fall Conference. Attend in-person events in communities around Vermont or join hybrid events online. Many sessions will center around the themes of our Vermont Reads 2022 selection, The Most Costly Journey, a comics collection of stories told by migrant workers in Vermont.
