This participatory workshop focuses on how to actively protect Indigenous Ceremonial Stone Landscapes (CSLs) in recognition of their cultural significance to the land and Tribes of the Northeast. Doug Harris, Deputy Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the Narragansett Indian Tribal Historic Preservation Office, will lead the process. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Chicopee Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
