Although often cast as background players to the history of European colonization, Native peoples sustained homelands on Amelia Island for far longer than the Spanish, British, or Americans. Drawing on her research on the Mocamas, Yamasees, and Guales, Dr. Denise I. Bossy presents the Indigenous history of Amelia Island: one that centers Native peoples. Dr. Bossy is an Associate Professor of History at the University of North Florida.
Attendance is free for museum members with a suggested donation of $5 for nonmembers. Masks are mandatory. Seating is limited on a first come, first served basis. This program is wheelchair accessible.
