Freedom Historical Society Presents “Indigenous Peoples and Artifacts of Ossipee River Valley” on Wednesday, September 21 at 7 PM

This fascinating “show and tell” program will be presented by Kim White Feather at Freedom’s Town Hall on Elm Street. The program is free and open to the public.

Kim White Feather, the daughter of a full-blood Mi’kmaq native woman, will present a brief history of New Hampshire’s and Maine’s indigenous peoples (Mi’kmaq, Maliseet, Passamaquoddy, Penobscot, and Abenaki) who traveled in the local area, including their trade routes and trails. Attendees will have the opportunity to view tables of Kim’s collection of artifacts from the Ossipee River Valley (some from tribes in New England) which will be on display. Kim will spend considerable time describing and demonstrating Native tools, musical instruments, games, furs, and clothing. There will be ample time for questions and answers.

Kim currently resides in Ossipee, where she has received her education and certification as a Certified Recovery Support Worker through AmeriCorps and has done coaching in the area assisting individuals in recovery from substance abuse disorder. She is also a volunteer at the Way Station in North Conway working with the homeless as they seek to improve their lives.

Kim was the Secretary of the New Hampshire Intertribal Native American Council for over 10 years and sat on the Pow Wow Committee for over 20 years. In addition, she has worked with Mother Earth Creations doing flute music, tours, and presentations at their Pow Wow grounds and the Fryeburg Fair.

Please join us for the presentation at 7 PM, Wednesday, September 21 at Freedom Town Hall, 16 Elm Street, Freedom, NH. For more information, please call 603-491-8347.
