Open House and Family Day of Thanksgiving at SoFo

November 28, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

SoFo welcomes representatives from the Shinnecock Nation Cultural Center and Museum

“Giving Thanks with Long Island’s First People”

Through family-fun activities, the Shinnecock will share traditional stories, dancing, singing, and food to express the importance of living with Mother Earth.

Come join us, get involved, and show your appreciation for Mother Earth by joining Shinnecock tribal members as they share their ways of being thankful for Long Island’s natural environment. If you can, please bring a $5 donation or non-perishable food items to donate to the Sag Harbor and Bridgehampton Food Pantries.

The Shinnecock, one of Long Island’s first people, continuously pass down teachings on how to care for our land. One of the first teachings is to be thankful for the environment. Today many people are concerned about climate change. The Shinnecock Nation people are sentinels and leaders in societal adaptation and mitigation in response to climate change. Among its most dramatic and economically significant effects are heat waves, drought, floods, and changing ocean conditions that affect the sea life on which coastal cultures depend. This celebration gives you a chance to show your concern for the flora and fauna of our beautiful planet. Learn how local Indigenous People of Long Island adapt to the effects of climate change, which allows them to live in harmony with the people, plants, and animals of our Earth.

Let’s make this a community day of thanksgiving!

Advanced reservations are required for all events.
