Deep History and Belonging in the Adirondacks
Tuesday, May 31, 7 to 8 pm, FREE, Via Zoom
Featuring scientist and educator Curt Stager, artist David Fadden, and professor Tim Messner.
The Adirondack mountains, lakes, and forests are an international symbol of wilderness within which humans are often considered to be recent intruders. In fact, the story of the human presence on this landscape runs even deeper than the forests themselves. Since the end of the last Ice Age when open tundra still dominated the region, predecessors and ancestors of Haudenosaunee and Abenaki peoples have made this region their home, although many historical accounts falsely claim that indigenous people were only visitors or absent altogether. This program will explore the deep human history of the Adirondacks and consider ways in which recent archeological discoveries have pushed the boundaries of scientific and historical knowledge and helped to shape larger discussions of belonging, ownership, stewardship, and the concept of wilderness itself.

A FAMILY FRIENDLY CONCERT
Tereson Dupuy and Eric Pasternak make up this beautiful, Adirondack-grown acoustic duo called Blessid Dirt. Both singer-songwriters, their original music is ripe with life experiences that most can relate to. Classified as “heavy folk”, they have been influenced by greats such as John Prine and Led Zeppelin alike. Eric, a native New Yorker, dazzles listeners with some wicked good pickin’ and brilliant lyrical balance. Tereson, a transplant from New Orleans, adds a bit of soulful southern charm, making this duo something to be experienced!
Food and beverages, including beer and wine, will be available. Donation (suggested): $10.
