Virtual Local History Talk: The Mohicans’ Incorporation into the Iroquois League
June 24 @ 6:00 pm
Join Hudson Area Library and the Jacob Leisler Institute for The Mohicans’ Incorporation into the Iroquois League, 1671-1675 a virtual talk by Dr. Evan Haefeli, historian of colonial North America and the Atlantic world at Texas A&M University. This talk derives from one of Dr. Haefeli’s current research projects on the history of the Iroquois Confederacy’s relations with its Indigenous neighbors to the east and south, especially the people of the Hudson Valley. It explains why the Mohicans and Munsee neighbors did not join in King Philip’s War and so prevented that conflict from spilling over into the Hudson Valley. Anyone interested in attending should call the library’s History Room at 518-828-1792, ext. 106 or email email@example.com to register and receive the Zoom link.
