Episode Description:

It was not uncommon for census takers to change the designation of a various groups of people of color back in the 1800’s. A Nipmuc or Indian family would become either negro, black, or mixed blood. Local historians would recount the passing of the “last Nipmuc” from their respective town in the Town’s “Centennial” History. Yet the truth is that the Nipmuc have always remained in the same landscape of their elders and remain here still. Join us as Along the Blackstone’s Episode #44 takes a hard look at the written histories that attempted to erase these native people’s story. The voices of the Nipmuc People at Hassanamisco, the only land continuously held in Indian ownership within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, tell with great passion their family stories of keeping their culture alive. Through their music, their language and their traditions you will find the Nipmuc to be very much a part of our community today.
