Land, Liberty & Loss: Echoes of the American Revolution, a Reading & Discussion program at Erie Canal Museum

May 6 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

The Erie Canal Museum along with Humanities New York presents “Land, Liberty and Loss,” an exploration of our nation’s founding and how its history—or, more pointedly, misapprehensions of that history—often serves as an obstacle to full democratic and civic flourishing. The project is grounded in the historical and ongoing intersections between racial justice, including the centuries-long deprivations endured by Indigenous and Native-Americans, and the evolution of the American landscape. “Liberty, Land, and Loss” is meant to prompt reflection on assumptions about the human connectedness between the natural and built environments, and to allow us to reconsider in a holistic sense how the Revolution which resulted in the United States connects to or disrupts indigenous histories, our use of natural resources, political development, and national expansion.
