Indigenous History Focus of Shaker Book Club

If you are interested in learning more about the history of Indigenous peoples, listen up! Johanna Batman, executive director of Shaker Heritage Society, discusses a new 4-session reading group on “Land, Liberty, and Loss” that will focus on the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) presence and impact in what is now New York state. She also explains how it connects to the upcoming 250th anniversary of Shakers coming to America, and how Shaker crafts and medicine may have been influenced by Indigenous knowledge. The first meeting will be March 6th at 6 pm, then 4/3, 5/1, and 6/5. Books will be provided on loan: register now so she can order sufficient copies. For details, see the events listing at shakerheritage.org or call 518-456-7890. Produced by Brea Barthel for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
