In Person Event
When wild strawberries ripen, they represent life and good health. They also herald the ripening of fresh fruits and the arrival of summer. Visitors of all ages will enjoy games and crafts, as well as traditional Native American stories with Education Director Darlene Kascak (Schaghticoke), while learning about the importance of giving thanks for the bounty of the Earth. Visit our Replicated Algonkian Village to learn about traditional gardening practices and indigenous lifeways in this area.
This year, we are also honored to be hosting Indigenous Educator, Anthropologist, and Tribal Food Expert Rachel Sayet (Mohegan) for a cooking demonstration and discussion featuring some of the traditional Indigenous ingredients used in Northeastern tribes. Sample traditional and contemporary Native American recipes made from locally grown strawberries, included in the price of admission. This event will be held rain or shine.
