A Native American Winter:  Dr. Lucianne Lavin, Director of The Institute for the American Indian Studies in CT & presenter on Zoom

 If you were a Native American living 500 (or 1000 or 5000) years ago, likely you would look forward to the winter season. Connecticut’s indigenous communities were outdoor peoples who not only survived but thrived under adverse weather conditions. They spent most of their lives in the open air. During warm weather people slept outdoors. Weetoos and wigwams (the Eastern Algonquian words for houses) were used for storage and as shelters in inclement weather. This  presentation describes the traditional winter activities of Native American before the coming of European settlers to Connecticut.  Registration Requested!
