The Institute for American Indian Studies is delighted to continue to be a part of the Upper Houstatonic Valley National Heritage Walks. Dr. Lucianne Lavin, IAIS' Director of Research and Collections, will prodive a glimpse into the history and culture of the local Pootatuck tribal peoples that includes their community life, spiritualty, and medicinal uses of the indigenous flora. Participants will walk along the museum's nature trails, ending at our replicated 16th Algonkian village.
