National Indigenous Peoples Day; Glengarry's Pre-Contact History

How was the Glengarry area used by Indigenous peoples before Europeans arrived in the late 18th century? How are the Akwesasne Mohawk people building back their language and traditions today?

To mark National Indigenous Peoples Day, the Glengarry Pioneer Museum invites you to learn the answers to these question from Phillip White-Cree from Clarkson University’s Humanities department in Potsdam, New York.

On March 4th, 2023, White-Cree spoke from the Native North American Travelling College in Akwesasne, Ontario about the pre-contact history of places and people who inhabited what would later become Glengarry County and its surrounding areas as part of the Glengarry Pioneer Museum's Historical Snapshot Video Series
