Jill is a cultural historian with an interest in the connection between the people and the environment of northern New England.
This presentation tells the story of an Indigenous man from southern New England who came to central Vermont during the late 19th century and was the victim of a murder. The story recreates community connections in a rural Vermont hill town.
It is a story about poverty, racism, disability, and gendered violence against women, but is also a story about Indigenous movement and choice despite great obstacles.
