About this event

On Sunday August 14 we will gather under the tent behind the Orchard School & Community Center in East Alstead, from 1-3 in the afternoon, to give thanks and honor the original people that lived where we now work, play and worship.

Gather with us and with Chief Paul "Gwilawato" (He Looks For Something) Bunnell, to create a clay plaque that honors the land and those that came before us. Cheif Paul is of the Ko'asek (Co'wasuck) Traditional Band of the Sovereign Abenaki Nation. He will preside over and bless our work.

Barbara Davis of Old Settlers Pottery will assist and encourage us in the making of the plaques. They will be made of stoneware clay and will be fired in her kiln. They will be finished and ready to pick up one month later.

These plaques could be hung on/in your home, workplace, school or place of worship, to acknowledge the land and to whom it originally belonged.

The fee is $25.00 (one plaque per participant). After the material fee is paid to Barbara (approximately 5$) the rest of the proceeds will be given to the Abenaki Nation.

Space will be limited to 20 people. No prior experience with clay is necessary. All are welcome.
