WORLD CULTURE CLUB OF CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA PRESENTS:



Uncovering Madame Montour’s Otstonwakin:
Archaeological Excavations at an 18th Century 
Native American Village


WEDNESDAY , APRIL 1, 2015 AT 7:00 PM




 
Speaker: Dr. Mary Ann Levine,
Professor of Anthropology, Franklin and Marshall College


 Dr. Levine will speak about a Moravian Missionary named  David Zeisberger who arrived at the confluence of the  Loyalsock Creek and the West Branch of the Susquehanna  River to find the once thriving village of Otstonwakin  abandoned. For decades this village had been a key nexus of  European and Native American Interaction, a place to rest  and negotiation for Native and newcomer alike and the home  of one of the most important interpreters and cultural  mediators of the day, Madame Montour.
