WRITING THE FUTURE OF THE LOWER FALLS

The Lower Fall’s cultural history can be understood by combining the approaches of anthropology and history to look at popular cultural traditions and cultural interpretations of historical experience. Examining the records and narrative descriptions of past matter, encompassing the continuum of events (occurring in succession and leading from the past to the present and even into the future) pertaining to a culture.

Cultural history records and interprets past events involving human beings through the social, cultural, and political milieu of or relating to the arts and manners that a group favors. Cultural history studies and interprets the record of human societies by denoting the various distinctive ways of living built up by a group of people under consideration. Cultural history involves the aggregate of past cultural activity, such as ceremony, class in practices, and the interaction with locales.
