LGLC Living Lands Series: Not the Last of the Mohicans

August 11, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

The Lake George Land Conservancy’s 2021 Living Land Series’ fifth presentation is presented by Heather Bruegl, Director of Cultural Affairs for the Stockbridge Munsee Community and member of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin.

All of the present-day Adirondacks are the native homelands of the Mohican people before they were displaced to Wisconsin. Learn about who the Mohican people are and how they shaped our history. Heather will discuss the tribe’s history here and the traditional ways Native Americans take care of the land, stewarding it for the next generations.

Heather Bruegl is the Director of Cultural Affairs for the Stockbridge Munsee Community and holds a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in U.S. History. A curiosity about her own heritage led her to Wisconsin, where she has researched the history of the Native American tribes in the area. In addition to that she also currently travels and speaks on Native American history, including policy and activism.

Living Lands is the Lake George Land Conservancy’s weekly presentation series that takes an exclusive and up-close look at the people, history and wildlife of the lands of Lake George and the Adirondacks, past and present. Presentations are virtual and go live at 5:30 pm on the event date.
