Professor Tortora led fifty-five students, faculty and staff on a guided tour of the Norridgewock Village Historic Site on November 2, 2013. The tour, sponsored by the Pugh Center and Colby Four Winds, covered the dramatic story of the Abenaki Indians and the French priest who called that village home until an English attack in 1724. Tour stops also included brief lectures about Abenaki and Wabanaki history, culture, warfare and diplomacy.
