This photo displays Ken Hamilton’s presentation during school on Wednesday. Mr. Hamilton is a colonial French/Wabanaki historian. He spoke on the life of Maine Native Americans, the Wabankai, as well as early English colonists, in the 1600s. Hamilton showed students many different artifacts from that time to provide an accurate picture of what life was like for the Wabanaki. He also spoke on how the culture of the Wabanaki and of the early English colonists were influenced and changed by each other through trade and war.
