A program about the state's indigenous people will be presented Aug. 11 at 3 p.m. at Minor Memorial Library in Roxbury.

The program, co-sponsored by the library, the library board and the Roxbury Land Trust, will be at the South Street library.

Dr. Lucianne Lavin, director of research and collections at the Institute of American Indian Studies in Washington, will present the program.

In her new book, "Connecticut's Indigenous Peoples: What Archaeology, History and Oral Traditions Teach Us about their Communities and Cultures," Lavin uses maps, photographs and text to illustrate a previously unknown history of Native Americans in Connecticut in the years before Europeans settled here.

The program is part of the "A Town Wants to Know" series.
