Native Ecologies: How Rivers Shaped Indigenous Communities in the American South
For thousands of years, Native people in the Southeast worked with local environments to ensure the well-being of their communities. VCU historian Gregory Smithers explores the ethos of environment and well-being by examining the long history of rivers in Native American history. His research reveals how the arrival of Europeans altered riverine ecologies and how Native Southerners are today reconnecting with local waterways to give new meaning to Native ecologies.
This program is offered as part of the library's commemoration of Native American Heritage Month. View additional programs in this series.
