Reminder: Native American Historical Re-enactment

On Thursday, July 30, 2015, Jay Levenson, an Access Services clerk in the Stony Brook University Libraries, will be sharing his knowledge of native culture with the students in ANT 203: Native Peoples of North America taught by Madeline Cherney.

Jay will be involved in a recreation of a fictional interview by an anthropologist with some academic knowledge of Northeast native cultures. He will be portraying a Mohawk scout from the period of 1755/1756.  As a Mohawk scout, Jay will discuss the affiliation with the British and what his duties and responsibilities are as a scout. He will respond to questions about his clothing, heritage, weapons and political relations.

The reenactment will begin at 3:15pm and will be held in SBS N501 (or outside, weather permitting).

All are welcome to attend!
