Malaga Island History and Virtual Tour. Not ready to sea kayak with Master Maine Guide Alice to Malaga Island for the five hour interpretive tour? Make a hot beverage and settle down to learn about the history of 41 acre Malaga Island - before the interracial colony, during the interracial colony existance until eviction - and after the colony. You will be sitting watching the talk from the comfort of your home.
The 90 minute talk with videos and photographs will acquaint you with the native americans that used the island and coastal Maine until they were displaced by settlers. Learn who started the colony and when. Learn about what was happening in the world and in Maine during the late 1800's and how that impacted the Malaga Island colony. Why did the residents of the island have difficulty with their neighbors? Learn about the forced eviction and what happened right afterwards. Learn about how the island is managed now and take a virtual tour of the island.
Jot down your questions and ask them at the end of the presentation. This is suitable for anyone aged 10 - 99.
Participants will receive a Zoom invitation to the talk after registration. Current books on the island include: Lizzy Bright and the Buckminster Boy, Rattled Bones, Dis Place, and Midden.
