Dec 4, 2019 - Jan 30, 2020

 In celebration of the United Nations International Mountain Day with the theme Mountains Matter to Indigenous Peoples, the UNH Library Exhibits Committee is pleased to present the research of two student interns in the Dept. of Anthropology, Erik Swenson and Marianna Conserva.   The students worked directly with members of the Pennacook Abenaki People and Assoc. Prof. Svetlana Peshkova to craft the story of the relationship of local indigenous peoples with New Hampshire’s mountains. This collaborative exhibit includes photographs of the five mountains that were studied with 3-D printed models of each mountain, as well as textual aspects of the research. 

The Committee hosts this work in the context of increasing awareness of another perspective on the landscape
