Learn about the vibrant Native American communities, past and present, of Connecticut’s northwest corner. Noted archaeologist and Director of Research and Collections at the Institute for American Indian Studies, Dr. Lucianne Lavin, will focus on the archaeology, history, and culture of the native people from this part of Connecticut in this illustrated and engaging presentation. After the talk, you can explore the past in the IAIS’ reconstructed prehistoric native village and learn first hand how people lived before contact with Europeans. There will be local Native American staff on hand who are a part of the Village Interpreter Program to answer your questions and demonstrate activities. Enter the wigwams and see everyday activities from cooking to building construction. You can also walk the grounds and enjoy the cool and peaceful forest trails. Program runs 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Advance registration required: $20 ($15 for Museum members). Adults and children ages 10 and above. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
