You are cordially invited to the launch of my first published Book:
AMONG THE ORIGINAL DWELLERS: REMEMBERING FERDINAND HAHN.
This is a biography of my great great grandfather who was an Anthropologist, Linguist, and Christian Missionary in India.
In researching my ancestor, I discovered the story of the original dwellers among whom he lived, known as the Adivasi.
This story speaks to globalization, heritage, culture, identity and community development in a cross cultural context.

Mary Girard with Bishop Nirmal Minz and his wife, Parakleeta, two remarkable leaders of the Adivasi Christians of Jharkhand. They are writer's themselves and have encouraged me much in my pursuit as a writer and have inspired many others. I am an author of my first book that is seeking publication. Among the Original Dwellers: Remembering Ferdinand Hahn, tells of the life story of my great great grandfather who was a missionary from 1868-1910 in Chota Nagpur. In writing his story I discovered the story of the Adivasi of the region who were also impacted by his life. I am now committed to inspiring others to learn and write about their Christian Adivasi heritage.
