Indigenous Peoples' Day Workshop at Mohican Miles

Sunday, October 9, 2022

11:00 AM–12:00 PM
To honor Indigenous Peoples’ Day, the Clark Art Institute sponsors a workshop led by JoAnn Schedler, a tribal council member of the Stockbridge-Munsee Community, entitled, “A Tribute to Survival: Honoring and Remembering our Ancestors During their Many Trails.” The workshop is offered on Sunday, October 9 and Monday, October 10 (Indigenous Peoples’ Day) at the Mission House Museum (19 Main St, Stockbridge, Massachusetts). The Mission House is the site of a current exhibit, Mohican Miles, which covers the history of the tribe, current works of the historic preservation office, and more.

Indigenous Peoples’ Day recognizes the legacy and resiliency of the Indigenous peoples of America. In her presentation, Schedler shares stories of her Mohican ancestors, detailing their sacrifices, determination, and strength. Schedler is a Mohican veteran and retired Army Major; she served in the U.S. Army Reserve for over twenty years. She also contributed to a National Park Service book, American Indians and the Civil War, writing the chapter “Wisconsin American Indians in the Civil War.”
