Brown Bag Lunch and Learn on Mocama - Amelia Island Museum of History

Amelia Island, Florida
Statewide Events

Starts: 9:00am

Amelia Island Museum of History will host a Brown Bag Lunch on Wednesday, September 7th at noon. Dr. Keith Ashley from the University of North Florida will be discussing Mocama missions in Northeast Florida. Mocama was a dialect of the Timucua language, spoken by people who lived along the coastline of Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. Archaeological evidence places them in the area as early as 1100 AD. Beginning in the latter half of the 16th century, Spanish Missions were established across Florida. This led to a clash of cultures that would play a pivotal role in shaping our history.

This program is free and open to the public. Seating is first-come/first-served. For more information contact Gray at 261-7378 ext 102, or Amelia Island Museum of History 233 S. 3rd St.
