Living Historian & Author

Beth Kennedy has been researching, reenacting and portraying living history for more than 20 years, attending living history events in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, New York, Ohio and Nova Scotia.  During that time, she has concentrated on the study of Native American women of the Colonial Period.  Her interest in the subject was piqued by family stories of Native American ancestry, which she set out to prove or disprove through extensive research.  Recently retired from teaching French and English at the high school level, she is currently working on a book about her ancestors, who were captives of the Shawnee in the mid- 18th century.
