CANCELED: Native American Symposium
May 11, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Due to circumstances beyond the control of the museum and staff, it is with great regret that we must cancel the Divergence: Native and Colonial Histories Symposium that was scheduled for Saturday, May 11. This was not an easy decision to make, given the amount of time and consideration put forth to give voice to a diverse range of speakers. These individuals would have explored the world of the Indigenous people who lived in this land before the arrival of the English, the experiences and perceptions of both cultures at first contact, and the subsequent First Anglo-Powhatan War. These issues are central to understanding Hampton, and our nation’s early history. They are as integral to our story as that of the first Africans brought to these shores in 1619.
