The newest interactive exhibit, Nowashe- an outdoor Native American living history museum- is the perfect setting for this year's Harvest Moon Fundraising Dinner. Nowashe, an Algonkian term meaning, "Place between two rivers" is located behind the Wood Memorial Library & Museum on South Windsor's historical Main Street. This dynamic, educational and interactive exhibit portrays the culture of the Podunk tribe, the Indigenous peoples who once called this land home.
The magical atmosphere that is Nowashe will be combined with seasonally inspired fare, spirits, live music and learning during this one-night-only exclusive preview event called "Experience Nowashe." Patrons will stroll down a wooded path, past a three sisters garden to emerge upon an Indigenous Peoples village consisting of two wetus and a Sachem's house. Guests will be introduced to Pre-contact history on docent guided tours as they learn what life would have been like for the Indigenous peoples of this woodland area.
The proceeds go to support future educational programming at the site. Availability is limited.
