Free Screenings of ‘Peoples of the Susquehanna’ Planned

0

Peoples of the Susquehanna River,” a documentary about the indigenous predecessors to European settlers who thrived along one of the world’s oldest waterways, will be shown at Susquehanna High School, 3192 Turnpike Street, Susquehanna at 2 pm on Saturday, May 26 and at the Keystone Theatre, 601 Main Street, Towanda on Friday, June 1, at 6 pm.

The film was produced by WVIA and covers the history of Native American tribes such as the Susquehannocks and Lenni Lenape that inhabited Pennsylvania, as well as members of the Iroquois Confederacy who lived in what would become New York state and who guarded the southern door of their territory at Teaoga Point or present-day Athens.

Highlights include breathtaking scenery and varying perspectives by historians and descendants of the Native Americans who maintain an active culture and enjoy telling their stories.

Peoples of the Susquehanna River” is being shown free-of-charge as a partnership between WVIA, Bucknell University and the Endless Mountains Heritage Region, which serves and represents Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna and Wyoming counties.

About Author

Managing Editor of EndlessMtnLifestyles.com, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
