From Tim MacS.
Going back to my very first post (http://wakinguponturtleisland.blogspot.com/2006/06/first-post.html) at “Waking Up On Turtle Island,” as well as my untitled 2nd post, I’d like to pose the question to any Rock Pile team members and readers that may have been to the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center who have toured the re-created Village, “How would you correct the picture presented there to include the stone structures that many of us strongly suspect to be Native American constructions?”
Recently I sent out, to some trusted people, a composite partial floor plan of the Museum’s village, as well as a stylized (and really incomplete) rendition of a relatively undeveloped area of land that in local histories was known as “The _____ Wigwams,” a real rarity which deserves protection and study – and could correct an inaccurate picture of the Cultural Landscape that, as the CT State Archeologist would change the whole the present view of prehistoric Connecticut (and to which I add, perhaps the whole of the country).
While driving the other day, my thoughts wandering and touching upon that idea of a more culturally correct representation of the village and its connected environs, I realized that I need some additional rooms that lead to distant places where similar places and structures exist in the many places that people are sending into Rock Piles.
And now it crosses my mind as I write this, perhaps it might be necessary to have entire wings dedicated to the many findings of Waksman, Muller, Porter and numerous others that I don’t mean to offend by leaving out their names here.
