    Into the Wilds



    Engaging Local History at Clarion University and Beyond



    Jeffrey Diamond | Marc Sanko



     







     







    On episode 19 of the Beaver County History Podcast, we talk with Clarion University history professors Jeffrey Diamond and Marc Sanko about teaching history and using podcasting to creatively engage students and community members around local history at Clarion University and throughout the great northern region of Pennsylvania.  



    Clarion Communications professor Matt Albright helps produce the "Stories from the Pennsylvania Wilds" podcast, which launched in March 2020.  The podcast draws in topics and guests of interest to the north west and central part of the state, including Erie, Warren, McKean, Potter, Tioga, Lycoming, Clinton, Elk, Cameron, Forest, Clearfield, Clarion, Jefferson and northern Centre counties.

    BCH Podcast (Ep18): Indigenous – Perspectives on Native Americans and Local History

    Indigenous



    Perspectives on Native Americans and Local History



    David Holoweiko | Mark Grago | Michael Kishbucher | Tony Lavorgne











    On episode 18 of the Beaver County History Podcast, we talk with public historians David Holoweiko, Mark Grago, Michael Kishbucher, and Tony Lavorgne about the complicated cultures and histories of Native Americans in Beaver County, Pennsylvania.



    According to the latest census data, .2% of Beaver Countians self identify as "American Indian" -- a governmental label defined as persons having origins in any of the original peoples of North and South America (including Central America). Prior to the arrival of Europeans in the 17th century--and dating back to at least 10,000 years ago according to archeologists, the population of the region was 100% indigenous. 



    How did we get from there to here, then and now?



    These four local public historians share their perspectives on the social, political, and economic histories of the rich and varied cultures of indigenous peoples of the region, which includes the Ohio River Valley, Western Pennsylvania, and what was once known as the Northwest Territories.
