The Indigenous People of Menotomy
Co-Presenters: Faries Gray, Sagamore of the Massachusetts Tribe of Ponkapoag, Ellen Berkland, Archaeologist, Mass. Department of Conservation and Recreation

Cyrus Dallin created Menotomy Hunter, the crowning jewel of Robbins Memorial Garden, to serve as an enduring tribute to the Massachusett people whose land once encompassed present day Arlington. Learn how Indigenous people thrived in this rich environment for thousands of years, and about the important work the Massachusett Tribe of Ponkapoag (descendants of these first people) is doing to preserve its culture, language, and traditions. This program is co-sponsored with the Arlington Historical Society.

Location: Masonic Temple, 19 Academy St., Arlington
Admission: $5/person
