Boardwalk Talk: Dr. Denise Bossy "Indigenous Florida: Debunking Myths of Spanish Conquest in our Region"

Location: Beaches Museum
Time: 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM

The Indigenous communities of Florida were far more numerous and powerful than the straggling Spanish town of St. Augustine or the short-lived French community of Fort Caroline. At its height, all of “Spanish” Florida consisted of only 1,500 people. But in the early sixteenth century, the Indigenous population of present-day Florida was well over 300,000. Using her own research on the Yamasee Indians (who had homelands on Amelia Island, in St. Augustine, and elsewhere), Dr. Denise Bossy debunks the major myths of Spanish conquest.

Bossy is an Associate Professor of History at the University of North Florida. She received her Ph.D., M.Phil., and M.A. from Yale University, and her B.A. from Princeton University. She specializes in local history, especially cross-cultural relations between American Indians, Europeans, and Africans in early Florida and the Southeast. She is the prize-winning author of many articles and book chapters, and the editor of the book The Yamasee Indians: From Florida to South Carolina (published in 2018 by the University of Nebraska Press). Her current book project is A History of the Yamasee Indians and her research has been supported by numerous institutions including the National Endowment for the Humanities and UNF.
This event is free for Beaches Museum members with a suggested $5 donation for non-members.

Cat and Nat: #MOMSTRUTHLIVE

Time: 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Hilarious best friends Cat and Nat created a massive online community of moms by sharing their ultra-real and just a bit R-rated dispatches from the mom trenches. From what not to eat a few days postpartum (chicken wings) to the most effective ways to avoid post-partum sex, Cat & Nat’s newest book, Mom Truths is everything no one will tell you about having kids.
In tandem with their book release, Cat and Nat are hitting the road to tell never-before-told stories about the stress, guilt, joy, and laundry (oh the laundry!) of being a mom. Join them as they shine a witty light on some of the hardest topics in motherhood, all while celebrating this amazing community of women who come from all walks of life but are united in the idea that we’re all just doing the best we can.
What to expect at each show:
• A live viewing of a #MOMTRUTHS podcast recording (Cat & Nat will dive deeper into a hilarious excerpt from the book – unique to each tour city).
• Brutal honesty about motherhood – we get into all the mom confessions that no one ever talks about
• Shenanigans (we can’t really define what this is, you just have to be there to find out)
• New friends. Come alone, or come with 20 other people, but we guarantee you’ll walk away with a community of women who have your back through the everyday gong show that is our life.
