Echoes of the American Revolution: Land, Liberty and Loss | October 10, 2022

October 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

  For Indigenous Peoples Day, join Overlook Mountain Center (OMC) and Humanities NY (HNY) for Echoes of the American Revolution: Land, Liberty and Loss. A free, public reading and discussion program will be offered at a 2hr session, with special guest speaker and reading topic.

The project is grounded in the historical and ongoing intersections between racial justice, including the centuries-long deprivations endured by Indigenous and Native Americans, and the evolution of the American landscape. “Land, Liberty, and Loss” is meant to prompt reflection on assumptions about the human connectedness between the natural and built environments, and to allow us to reconsider in a holistic sense how the Revolution that resulted in the United States connects to or disrupts indigenous histories, our use of natural resources, political development, and national expansion

Session Title:  Echoes of Loss; Lost Culture, Language, Art & Science
Facilitator: Glenn Kreisberg
Speaker: Chief Vincent Mann
Reading :   Across the Great Border Fault by Kevin T. Dann
