Pow-wow July 8 & 9 2017

The Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum Announces

WARNER, NH:  The Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum is pleased to once again host its 18th Annual Intertribal Powwow on Saturday, July 8 and Sunday, July 9, 2017.  Powwows focus on the fundamental values common to Native Americans across North America: Honor, Respect, Tradition and Generosity.  Along with their families, thousands of singers, dancers, and vendors follow the Powwow Trail all over the entire continent to share and celebrate the culture.

Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum will feature two fun-filled days of music, dancing, storytelling, special exhibits and much more.  Visit the many quality vendors selling Native American arts, crafts and supplies.  You will also enjoy the traditional and contemporary foods available to fill every appetite.

Music is an integral part of Native American culture and there are few better opportunities to appreciate its beauty and complexity than at a traditional powwow.  The drum is often heralded as the “heartbeat of the people” and MKIM is fortunate to host several of the best Northern and Southern style drums in New England for our annual Powwow.

Complementing the singing and drumming, you will find dancers representing different tribes and dance styles from across North American filling the circle with their energy and grace.  From the brightly colored shawls and feathers of fancy dancers, to the joyful sounds of bells and jingles, to the regal elegance of the traditional dancers – this is an event you will not want to miss. 

Powwow admission per day:  Adults $10; Seniors/Students $10; Children (6-12) $5; Children (Under 6) No Charge; Family $30; Family Weekend $50; MKIM Members $5 and as always, Native Americans are at no charge.

Program about Native Americans in WWI June 17, 2017

"They Answered The Call" 
with John Brannon, Jr. 
Saturday, June 17th
7:00pm 


 
A special lecture with John Brannon, Jr. about the story of the American Indian experience in World War I. 

In 1917, the United States entered into this Great War.  Many Native Americans were not yet U.S. citizens.  The Bureau of Indian Affairs encouraged tribes to send volunteers to serve in the war. Native Americans had the highest percentage of enlistments in military service. Even though they were not eligible for the draft in 1917, they were required to register for the draft.  

Many volunteered willingly to serve in the United States military.  An estimated 10,000 Native Americans served during the War. 

Native peoples in both the United States and Canada answered the call to war.  Some Natives trained for nursing service, military sharpshooting and used Native language as a pivotal reversal of allied advantage for communications against the Germans during the War. 
 
Join John Brannon as he discusses the accomplishments of Native peoples during the time of the Great War. This lecture is free, thanks to support from "Over There, Over Here" and New Hampshire Humanities. Light refreshments will be served.

Last of the Doughboys: WWI

Over There, Over Here: World War 1 and Life in N.H.
Last of the Doughboys: The Forgotten Generation and Their Forgotten World War Richard Rubin

In 2003, 85 years after the armistice, it took Richard Rubin months to find just one living American veteran of World War One.  But then he found another.  And another.  Eventually he managed to find dozens, aged 101 to 113, and interview them.  A decade long odyssey to recover the story of a forgotten generation and their Great War led Rubin across the United States and France, through archives, private collections, battlefields, literature, propaganda, and even music.  But at the center of it all were the last of the last, the men and women he met: a new immigrant, drafted and sent to France, whose life was saved by a horse; a Connecticut Yankee who volunteered and fought in every major American battle; a Cajun artilleryman nearly killed by a German aeroplane; an 18 year old Bronx girl "drafted" to work for the War Department; the 16 year old who became America's last World War One veteran; and many, many more.​  Their stories will help create a public discussion about the effect of World War 1.

Rubin will be speaking Saturday, June 10th at 7:00 p.m. at the Warner Town Hall located at 5 East Main street in Warner.  This program is part of World War I and America, a two-year national initiative of Library of America presented in partnership with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with generous support from The National Endowment for the Humanities.
