Recognition of Indigenous Peoples Day Presented by Save Native Sites

October 8 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free

In recognition of Indigenous Peoples day, Save Native Sites is presenting a series of talks on the life and culture of the area’s first inhabitants. At 11:00am, Evan Pritchard will give a PowerPoint lecture, “Westward Migrations; Esopus-Munsee on the Susquehanna”.  Doc “Mud Turtle” Morgan will be our featured speaker and teacher at 1:00pm. As an elder, he will tell his story about growing up in Mahwah, N.J., on ancestral lands of the Ramapough/Lenape people. As a child, he and his family lived largely on and from the land, but over the decades, he witnessed changes that “development” brought to the Ramapo mountains and the Ramapo River. We will gather in a circle to hear these stories of a life lived and wisdom gained over four generations in the Ramapo Mountains by Doc “Mud Turtle” Morgan.

This event is part of New York State’s PATH THROUGH HISTORY weekend. Path Through History Weekends are a showcase of New York State’s rich and fascinating history and will feature hundreds of events happening at historic and cultural destinations throughout the state.
