Webinar: Crisis in Catawba Territory: Catawba Indian Women’s Interactions with Catawba and Non-Catawba Men, 1789-1828
November 16 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm$5 – $10
In this online event, Brooke Bauer will examine Catawba women’s interactions with the men in their world during a period of crisis. She will expand on our understanding of the roles and responsibilities that Catawba women held within their society concerning Catawba land. Oral history, combined with written sources, enhance our knowledge of Catawba women’s responses to the men they encountered. Whether they were Catawba men who held them in high esteem or were land-hungry South Carolina councilmen, hostile landless settlers, curious academics, or frightened Irishmen, women had a voice in their daily lives.
