Nolumbeka Events

River Walk: Native American History
Saturday, May 2, 2015; 10am-12pm
Turners Falls, MA
Join the Nolumbeka Project and the Connecticut River Watershed Council to learn about 10,000 years of Native American presence near the Great Falls. Learn from and speak to experts in the Native American history of this area, culminating in the Turners Falls massacre during King Phillips War in 1676. Meet at the Unity Park/bike path gravel parking area on First St in Turners Falls. Involves leisurely walking along paved bike path for 1-1.5 miles. Accessible to all; dogs on leashes welcome. Free (donations appreciated).

Here is a link to the March 10 Valley Advocate with an article involving the Nolumbeka Project,  David Brule, Nolumbeka Project Board member and Battlefield Grant coordinator, is quoted in the opening and closing paragraphs about the significance of the Great Falls area to Native Americans of the Northeast. At 1 p.m. the Nolumbeka Project will share the annual Day of Remembrance ceremony of the 339th anniversary of the 1676 Great Falls Massacre at the Discovery Center. Meanwhile, now that spring is finally here, find a stone that might symbolize healing and reconciliation.  On the 16th we will be collecting those stones to become part of a permanent ceremonial mound on the Wissatinewag land. This monument will be assembled permanently and dedicated on June 20. It is likely to be added to year after year. We will announce other details and time as they become available.

Attached to this e-mail is a flyer of a presentation by Larry Mann of the Nipmuc tribe in Plainfield this Sunday.
