Event Description: 

In the face of the Climate Crisis, we need to transform our perception of and relationship with Nature and the Environment. The wisdom of Indigenous People past and present and that of our ancestors can show the way. Join us the at CFPA Headquarters in welcoming Jim Powers, author of Ancient Wisdom, Modern Hope, a book about the arrival of indigenous people in Southern New England and how their eco-spiritual world-view facilitated a harmonious nature based existence and how that view and their way of life was fractured by the arrival of European traders and settlers and the philosophy that has since dominated.

Jim is a retired teacher, historian, archeologist, researcher, lecturer, and author. He is a founding member of the Dudley Farm Museum in Guilford, CT and is heading up the development of the Quinnipiac Dawnland Museum at the Farm. Jim will be giving a presentation on his book, signed copies will be available to purchase.
