Calumet and Cross Heritage Society, a nonprofit dedicated to preserving and sharing the stories of the Brothertown Indians, is organizing a bus tour to take place in October of this year. This trip is in honor of two important Brothertown anniversaries. The first commemorates the 300th anniversary of the birth of the Reverend Samson Occom (1723) while the 2nd commemorates the 250th anniversary of the meeting in Mohegan to plan the Brothertown community (March 13, 1773).
If you’re interested in attending, please see the flyer below for more details—or feel free to contact me.
Additionally, mementos to commemorate this anniversary will be included, free of charge, to each person paying for a bus seat. For those who are not able to make the trip but are interested in mementos, a limited number of each are being made available for purchase to the general public.
Currently, journals are being offered in 1 of 2 styles for $17.73 apiece or $35/set. Please visit this link to order: https://www.calumetandcross.org/post/anniversary-journals-for-sale
Finally, if you are interested in helping to offset bus trip expenses or are interested in sponsoring an elder so that they can go on this trip, please reach out to Calumet and Cross or send your donation through the Paypal donate button at https://www.calumetandcross.org/donate-now. Don’t forget to mention whether you’d like your money to go to general bus trip expenses or whether you’re sponsoring an elder for the bus trip! Thank you for your generosity!
