Cullman Center Institute for Teachers: Being Discovered: Native Americans and Henry Hudson
EVAN HAEFELI, Instructor
Using the famous case of Henry Hudson’s ‘discovery of New York,’ the seminar will reflect on this crucial moment in American history. We will use primary and secondary sources, both European and indigenous, to build perspectives on this foundational experience and illustrate how interpretations of the past belong to our present.
Evan Haefeli teaches history at ColumbiaUniversity. He is working on a book that draws on the diversity of peoples, languages, beliefs, and politics in colonial America, and on the relations – religious and violent, friendly and legendary, personal and imperial – between them.
