A Day of Discussion: Indigenous Peoples’ Day Event
October 10 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
For generations, American history has tended to focus on the “View from the Boat”- the perspective of those who have arrived in the past 450 years. More recently, museums, historians, books and movies have begun to promote the “View from the Shore”- the perspective of the Native inhabitants who were already here, and their descendants who still survive throughout the Americas. Join Education Coordinator Darlene Kascak, of the Schaghticoke Tribal Nation, along with IAIS Museum Educators, for a conversation about the traditions, stories, and cultural items of the Native people here in Southern New England, as well as the complicated history of contact with European settlers.
Included in the Price of Museum Admission: IAIS Members Free, $10 Adults, $8 Seniors, $6 Children. Pre-Registration is recommended. Please call (860) 868-0518, ext 103 or email [email protected]
