James Bruchac Lecture Series — Native American Culture and History March 21, 7 pm

Focusing on natural resources from plants, trees, rocks, animals, and water – to the soil beneath your feet – Jim provides physical evidence to show how Native Americans shaped these key resources into everything they needed to survive. Along with showing objects such as deerskin clothing, furs, a birch bark canoe, snowshoes, wampum, baskets and hunting tools, Jim also explains the ways this original reliance on the natural world helped shape the many Native legends, cultural values and social interactions that continue to this day.
