Let the Landscape Speak
The Indigenous Ceremonial Stone Landscape surrounds us in New England, often hidden in plain sight in the forests and fields. Most people who come across enigmatic stone structures don't know that some are remnants of a network built by Indigenous Americans for ceremonial and other purposes. Doug Harris, Deputy Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the Narragansett Indian Tribal Historic Preservation Office, has been Tribally certified in the identification of ceremonial stone features for 16 years. He will present an illustrated talk showing various types of Indigenous ceremonial stone features. Ample time will be provided for questions about structures audience members know of. The event is accessible to children 12yrs+ and adults. This program is sponsored by the Northampton Arts Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
