Traditional Mishoon Burn—Communal Waters: Highways of Intertribal Exchange
October 31 - November 14
Join Andre Strongbearheart Gaines, Cultural Steward of the Nipmuc Tribe, working in partnership with Thomas Green, Indigenous Artist & Educator of the Massachusett Tribe at Ponkapoag, for the first burn and launch of a traditional mishoon (canoe) in the city limits of Boston in countless generations. This intertribal collaboration seeks to acknowledge teachings and foster cultural revitalization and continuity between sister tribes, educate Greater Boston in the indigenous ways of stewarding these lands and waters, and bring healing and medicine through this collective creative act.
