Greetings from the Stockbridge-Munsee Tribal Historic Preservation Manager
By Bonney Hartley
Stockbridge-Munsee Community is looking forward to re-opening our "Mohican Miles" exhibit this month at the Mission House Museum in Stockbridge, MA. This year we have expanded our exhibit to include a Mohican medicine garden, a medicine preparation area, and residencies of Tribal members coming out to offer on-site workshops. I wanted to share the dates and registration info for these "Mohican Miles" Community-led Workshops:
Saturday June 18 and Sunday June 19th 11:00am - 12:00pm
Misty Cook, Mohican herbalist, and author of the book "Medicine Generations," will provide an interactive Medicine Walk at the Mission House for participants. We will walk through the grounds and talk about all of the traditional medicines growing in the garden and their preparation, answering questions along the way.
Saturday June 25 and Sunday June 26 11:00am - 12:00pm
PLANTING SEEDS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY
Lucille Burr, traditional teacher, operates Ancient Roots Homestead in Bowler, Wisconsin. She works to connect her community, Stockbridge-Munsee Community, to ancestral knowledge of Indigenous ways of life. In this child-friendly workshop, Lucy will share seed keeping and plant knowledge. Participants will "make and take" a seed cup home from the workshop.
Free of charge thanks to our partners: Stockbridge-Munsee Community, the Trustees, and Housatonic Heritage.
Please register and share with others!
Hope to see you there.
