DE­TAILS: The Stone Ridge Li­brary will present an il­lus­trated lec­ture ti­tled “Bor­rowed Cap­i­tals, Bor­rowed Hol­i­days.” It will be de­liv­ered by Evan Pritchard, a Na­tive Amer­i­can au­thor and scholar. He will share his re­search cov­er­ing the Al­go­nquian peo­ple and their con­tri­bu­tion to both our cur­rent po­lit­i­cal struc­ture and sea­sonal hol­i­days. He will also give ex­am­ples of many United States cap­i­tals which were once cen­ters of pop­u­la­tion and lead­er­ship for Na­tive Amer­i­cans and how some gov­ern­men­tal struc­tures that we have to­day de­rive from the Delaware and Hau­denosaunee Con­fed­era­cies of our re­gion. He will also speak about the “Nun­nowa,” and “Gumwin,” In­dian har­vest cel­e­bra­tions, as we pre­pare for the na­tion’s tra­di­tional Thanksgiving cel­e­bra­tion. The pro­gram is suit­able for all ages and is free and open to the pub­lic.
