Description

SITE NO. 4: INDIGENOUS HISTORIES

Sunday July 14

12–2pm

Quinnipiac Meadows Eugene B. Fargeorge Preserve

1040 Quinnipiac Ave, New Haven

Parking lot at Preserve

Jim Powers from The Quinnipiac Dawnland Museum will discuss Indigenous history on the river, with a focus on the Meadows Preserve's Grannis Island archaeological site. Join as we learn and draw together!

— Quinnipiac is roughly translated to “long water land,” a name given by Indigenous peoples who lived along the river long before European settlement. Later, the river became intrinsically tied to the history of New Haven and many other towns in its watershed.

— After a brief talk we will explore the site and sketch, then share our drawings together as a group. 

— No drawing experience necessary! We use sketching as a tool for observing, capturing, and reflecting on our surroundings.

— Some art supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring your own.

— Bring water and sun/weather/bug protection. We will be next to a river, after all!

— Heavy rain will reschedule; check back for info. For more information about the project visit https://elycenter.org/long-water-land.
