WELCOME TO SCHEMITZUN: FEAST OF GREEN CORN AND DANCE
All are welcome to join our annual family-friendly celebration as we usher in the 2021 harvest season and give thanks to the Creator for our rich heritage while honoring our ancestors, warriors, veterans, and Elders. Located at the Mashantucket Pequot Cultural Grounds in the heart of one of America’s oldest Indian reservations, Schemitzun features traditional and contemporary tribal dance exhibitions, drum and live music, and plenty of authentic Native American-made crafts.
A 17th century Eastern Woodland Village exhibit offers fascinating demonstrations of traditional Pequot cultural practices—including fire-pit cooking, wampum and fish net making, loom beadwork and basketry. http://www.schemitzun.com/
