Renowned scholar and author Dr. Jeremy Bangs offers his unparalleled knowledge land sales and title deeds in early New England.


How did the sale of land by Native people to the English colonists, begun in the colony’s first days in the 1630s and based on the presumption that the British monarch owned all, take place?


How freely or fairly was the land sold, and what were the understandings of land use and ownership that shaped the cumulative outcome of these transactions?


Dr. Bangs explores the forces that led, regardless of the ethics of individual legal transfers, to what was ultimately an almost complete loss of land by New England's Native people. 


He will also present us with new research into Massachusetts land sales. 


This is the fourth in a five-part series, The Power of Place: An Indigenous View of Land and Place in Early New England, organized by the Partnership of Historic Bostons. See www.historicbostons.org to find out about our upcoming events!
