The Otis Historical Commission and Otis Preservation Trust (OPT) are hosting the third Notice Otis Series cultural event of the 2021-22 season on Thursday, February 10th at 7 PM via zoom.  Director of the Forge Project, Heather Bruegl will speak on Native American History in Berkshire County. [See photo inset].  Please join us via zoom to hear, see and learn about the indigenous people of our area.

The Forge Project is an Indigenous-led organization focusing on those in Indigenous communities who work for land justice, climate activism and cultural awareness. Bruegl’s work supports “artists and activists by creating a fellowship where they can work in their communities to continue doing good across Indian Country.” A historian, Bruegl speaks about events focusing primarily on Native American History. Some of her lecture topics have included:  The Power of Native Women; A History of Native American Reservations; The French and Indian War.

“As a citizen of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin, I find Native American History extremely important and under-taught.  I am currently working on researching and writing a book.”

The Otis Historical Commission of the Town of Otis, MA is dedicated to the preservation of historic buildings, landmarks, trails, cemeteries and native burial grounds, to protect and educate about these historic assets.  The Otis Preservation Trust (OPT) works with the Historical Commission to organize and preserve the history and heritage of Otis, MA for future generations by supporting efforts to preserve, restore, repurpose and educate about buildings, monuments, lands and memorabilia of Otis.  OPT is a not-for-profit (501c3) organization operated for fundraising and educational purposes.

This event will be held on line via Zoom. Donations are encouraged.
