Sunday, October 24, 2021, from 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m., Cornish Historical Society is offering an event at Pike Hall to honor Maine's Bicentennial: Show and Tell, Native Artifacts of the Ossipee River Valley.
Kim Whitefeather, daughter of a full-blood Micmac (Mi’kmaq) native woman, will be presenting her collection of artifacts from the Ossipee Valley Native Abenaki tribes.
Come see tables full of artifacts from the Ossipee Region plus listen to Kim’s lectures and see her demonstrations of Native tools, musical instruments, and clothing.
There will be a Q & A session, too.
Refreshments will be examples of Native cuisine: beans, vegetables, wild meats, and breads.
What does seeing a white bird feather mean? White feathers come from the purest angels and symbolize faith and protection. They are most significant when found in a spot where they are not likely to be, such as inside of a home.
The presentation is free, but donations are suggested. Please come with your questions and stories. For more information, please call Judy at (207) 625-8323 or Cynthia at (207) 671-6354.
