In Skywoman: Legends of the Iroquois, Native American writers Joanne Shenandoah and Doug George tell nine stories about how the world was created, their ancestors, animals, nature, and the lessons of the Creator and the great Iroquois Peacemaker. These Iroquois legends embody traditional wisdom and spiritual values, and connect present experience with a mythic past.
Hot chocolate and other light refreshments will be available. Â Aldrich education director Nina Carlson will moderate a discussion of the book in relation to Marie Wattâs art.
The book club is free to members and $3 for non-members. Copies of the book are available for purchase in the museum store.
