Papscanee Island: The Stockbridge-Munsee Community’s Continued Efforts to Protect Their Sacred Lands

HMM producer Anna Steltenkamp speaks again with Heather Bruegl, the Director of Cultural Affairs for the Stockbridge-Munsee Community of the Mohican Nation. Heather continues her discussion of the cultural significance of Papscanee Island and the Stockbridge-Munsee Community’s efforts to protect their sacred lands. Papscanee Island is located in the Hudson River, the Mahhicannituck, just south of Albany, New York. National Grid’s proposed E-37 natural gas pipeline threatens to negatively impact Papscanee Island. Heather addresses the most recent developments in the proposed Pipeline E-37 case, including the Pipeline E-37 Resolution that was approved by the Tribal Council of the Stockbridge-Munsee Community on August 18, 2020.
