IAIS is delighted to participate again in the Upper Housatonic Valley National Heritage Walks. Dr. Lucianne Lavin, IAIS’ Director of Research & Collections, will provide a glimpse into the history and culture of the local Pootatuck tribal peoples that includes their community life, spirituality, and medicinal uses of the indigenous flora. Participants will walk along the museum’s nature trails, ending at our replicated 16th century Algonkian village. Please wear sturdy walking shoes and weather appropriate clothes.
This is a free event in conjunction with the Upper Housatonic Valley National Heritage Organization’s Heritage Walks Weekend.
