Quinnetukut: Stories of Survival and Hands-on History with IAIS
Darlene Kascak (Schaghticoke Tribal Nation), from The Institute for American Indian Studies, will give an interactive presentation on the 12,000-year history of Life in the Eastern Woodlands. Immerse yourself in the lifeways of Native Americans in the past and present day. Darlene, the Education Director at IAIS and Traditional Native American Storyteller, will share various visual and tactile resources and stories to guide the discussion about how Eastern Woodlands Natives have adapted to their changing environment. With hands-on activities, you will learn the importance of working together for the sake of the community, innovation through knowledge of natural resources, and how that knowledge can benefit everyone today. IAIS will bring animal furs, replicated artifacts, organic instruments, and more contemporary items for an interactive and educational experience.
