Food For Thought: The History of Thanksgiving

November 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Presented by Darlene Kascak (Schaghticoke Tribal Nation)-

Education Director-Institute for American Indian Studies (IAIS) in Wahsington, CT

What does Thanksgiving mean to you? Is it a holiday to be celerated with food and friends while giving thanks?  Indigenous people called this land home for over 12,000 years. The same holiday can mean different things to different people. For many Native Americans living today, answering the above questions are not simple.  Join Education Director Darlene Kascak, Schaghticoke Tribal Nation for a discussion about the myths, misconceptions, & the complex history surrounding this holiday.  From documents written at the time, as well as Wampanoag oral histories, you may find the history of Thanksgiving is more surprising than you might have imagined.

Free- No Registration - Phone 203-888-3903 for more information.

This program is suitable for adults and those over fifteen years of age.
