Indigenous NH 101 is a podcast series created by the Indigenous New Hampshire Collaborative Collective, featuring Indigenous songs and stories recorded by our collaborators.

New Hampshire’s historical narrative, like most American historical literature, tends to neglect the significance and complexities of the land’s Indigenous cultures. These narratives often leave readers with the impression that North America was sparsely inhabited before European arrival, and that the land’s Indigenous inhabitants have since disappeared. Although Indigenous peoples have suffered profound injustices from initial European contact until now, Indigenous cultures prevail, and so do their histories.

Indigenous New Hampshire Collaborative Collective is a collaboration between the University of New Hampshire’s Anthropology Department, and Paul and Denise Pouliot of the Cowasuck Band of the Pennacook Abenaki People. This long-term project intends to reframe New Hampshire’s history from an Indigenous perspective. This blog is a living document that adapts, evolves, and expands as our knowledge of Indigenous history grows deeper and more complex.

    005: Indigenous Peoples’ Day Forum

    005: Indigenous Peoples’ Day Forum

    In March of 2019, the Indigenous New Hampshire Collaborative Collective helped to host an open forum at University of New Hampshire addressing the potential of changing Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples’ Day at UNH and on a larger scale. Listen to hear what panelists had to say about this change.

    Note: After the forum, the Student Affairs Committee at UNH proposed a motion on Indigenous People’s Day, reading “We propose that Columbus Day be renamed Indigenous Peoples’ Day on the UNH Calendar and that it be observed on the second Monday in October. This would start in Fall 2019. Recognition of IP Day does not require classes to be canceled.”
