On Saturday, May 14th at 2pm Emily Stacey will be presenting a talk about the Haudenosaunee (Mohawk) Creation Story and Thanksgiving Address. The presentation will take place in the events courtyard near Shoe Dept.
The presentation will examine the 13 symbols representing key points of traditional Mohawk values carved into the Turtle Sculpture located in Peace Point Park in Plattsburgh, New York. Ms. Stacey will explain their meaning and how they connect with Haudenosaunee cultural practices. The presentation also connects to the museum at the mall display. The Haudenosaunee (Mohawk) Creation Story is currently on exhibit in events courtyard.
Ms. Stacey looks forward to the opportunity to be able to share her culture with shoppers and area residents. The Mohawk people have been in the North Country area for thousands of years and have always known the importance of having respect for the land and all its beings. Ms. Stacey will make several appearances over the next few weeks, all of which are free, family-friendly, and open to the public.
The presentation is made possible with funds from the Restart NY Regrants 2021-22 Mini-Grant program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts.
