Season of Thanks: Native Traditions
November 29 | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
While the Thanksgiving holiday brings to mind stories of Native people in early New England, we know that Native people continue to survive and thrive far beyond this early period of contact. Narragansett descendant Jennifer Lee will talk about Native history and culture while demonstrating traditional bark-basket-making technology.
Season of Thanks: Society of the 17th Century
November 30, 2013 | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Meet the Society of the 17th Century, a group of reenactors who will bring our historic Hall Tavern building to life with an incredible array of period arts, crafts and trades. See redware pottery, spinning, lace making, herbal lore, quill pen writing, wood carving, basket making, and arms and armor. Skilled re-enactors invite hands-on involvement when appropriate. Also enjoy open hearth cooking demonstrations and learn about natural dyes.
