I'm grateful to the MCC and the Stockbridge Cultural Council for this program that helped build bridges between the Stockbridge community here in Massachusetts and the Stockbridge Mohican community in Wisconsin. In addition to a 'historical/musical' walk that I led to the Housatonic River and Indian burial ground in Stockbridge, there was a music program at the library that wove together stories, songs and history.
There's a wealth of new books that the Stockbridge Indians gifted to the library museum with new stories and history to explore!
