Picturing Maine’s Indigenous Context: Colonialism and the Penobscot (online)

October 14 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm

A talk by Liam Riordan, Professor of History, The University of Maine

This illustrated lecture uses the recent removal of the Gomez Memorial in Bangor and four works of art (created from 1835 to 2020) to reconsider how we understand colonialism in the lower Penobscot River and bay as well as the experiences of Penobscot people and their nation. Contemporary Wabanaki vitality has profound implications for how we should understand colonialism and this region in the past, present, and future. Liam Riordan is a member of Bangor’s Historic Preservation Commission.
