“Symphonies in Stone: Finding Harmony and Balance in the Ancient Ceremonial Landscapes of the Catskills” presented by Evan Pritchard via Zoom

November 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This is a virtual Zoom presentation. Please make sure to register so you can receive a link via email to attend. All are welcome.

In this presentation author and professor Evan Pritchard (of Mi’kmaq descent) will screen selections from an original film matching western classical music to photos of the Catskill’s indigenous stone cairns, based on his own in-depth interpretations of the cairns themselves, anticipating the feelings these beautiful works of art may inspire within the hearts of Eastern Algonquins. Such feelings are fundamentally subjective, but often based on stories and symbols well known to people who lived here a thousand years ago. Followed by Q and A.

 Evan Pritchard, has been doing field interviews with Native American elders since 1990, and has been the director of Center for Algonquin culture for the last 26 years. A lecturer on native studies at Vassar, Pace, Marist, Columbia, SUNY, John Jay, University of Ontario, UMass, and Ramapo College of NJ, he has also presented at Gracie Mansion, AMNH, Smithsonian, and often presents classes online.
