DescriptionFor the fourth consecutive year, IAIS will present the Village Interpreter Program beginning June 28 and running through August 31. Members from a variety of Eastern Woodland Tribes will staff our outdoor village, allowing for a better understanding of the history, culture and social values of Algonkian and Iroquois Peoples.

The Native Interpreters will demonstrate traditional activities and lifeways skills, such as weaving dreamcatchers; making talking sticks; creating beadwork; outdoor cooking; dancing; and more.

Our interpreters are of Abenaki, Mi’Kmaq, Shinnecock, Mohawk and Cree descent and will be available to answer questions concerning history, culture and contemporary Native American issues. This program is funded by the Leever Foundation of Waterbury.
