Valley Talk #3: Chuck Arning and Bruce Curliss
“Entangled Landscape”

This talk takes a look at the Blackstone Valley, and New England as a whole, from the standpoint of how native communities and English settlers used and viewed the landscape. At the time of English arrival, the New England landscape was not a wilderness; native peoples had been manipulating the landscape for over 1500 years. However, the English did see the landscape as a frightening and mystifying wilderness, while for the Native peoples it was home, and not a wilderness at all. “Entangled Landscape” will also delve deeply into the complexities of language with regards to indigenous communities.
