Indigenous New England
UNH Associate Professor of English Siobhan Senier, with assistance from faculty, students, and the community, organizes an annual Indigenous New England Conference in the fall. Professor Senier teaches and publishes on Native American literature.
Writing of Indigenous New England: Sat., Nov 2, 2013
The fall 2013 conference will be devoted to expanding the website, Writing of Indigenous New England (INE). The site allows tribal historians in remote locations to upload digital materials, tag them with appropriate metadata, and curate them in interpretive exhibits. UNH students can collaborate on these projects, and train tribal members to use the website. Special guests will be Joan Tavares Avant and Linda Coombs, both Wampanoag elders and historians. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Invisible-Visible Online Exhibit: Emerging Contemporary New England Native American Art
In the fall of 2010, The University Museum in UNH Dimond Library presented “Invisible/Visible,” a group exhibition of contemporary regional Native American artists curated by the renowned painter George Longfish (Seneca/Tuscarora). It featured a wide range of media by indigenous people who have lived and/or worked in New England. Though the museum exhibit closed in December, we are pleased to extend its “visibility” through this online version.
