A Native American Winter

Wednesday, September 27th at 7:00pm, at the Killingworth Firehouse. Lucianne Lavin presents part three of her series on Connecticut’s indigenous peoples. 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. They spent most of their lives in the open air. During warm weather people slept outdoors. Weetoos and wigwams (the Eastern Algonquian word for houses) were used for storage and as shelters in inclement weather. This PowerPoint presentation describes the traditional winter activities of Native American before the coming of European settlers to Connecticut. Please register in advance at the library.

This program has been made available by a grant from the Killingworth Foundation.
