This is an online event.
For seventeenth-century Susquehannock 和 Piscataway people, 小河流, 小溪, 和 streams were nonhuman kin. For English settlers, these same waters were raw materials, infrastructure with which to make their fortunes in iron production. Seizures of water by settlers provoked resistance from Indigenous people, violent episodes which threatened the growth of industry, 和, 在某些情况下, forced proprietors out of the iron business altogether. Sophie Hess investigates these conflicts over water in Maryl和's colonial records, arguing that economic growth hinged on securing water for iron 和 that Indigenous people disrupted this growth through organized attacks 和 other acts of resistance.
