Weekend Workshops – Colonial Trade
October 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm$10 – $15
On Saturday, October 7, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., the Wilton Historical Society will explore the exchange of goods that grew quickly after European colonization, and the impacts such trade had on the American Indigenous peoples whom were disrupted and displaced as a result. Museum Educator Catherine Lipper will use maps and props to talk about the Spice Trade and other global commerce, in addition to participating in a gourd decorating craft inspired by the artistry of Indigenous Peoples. The morning will finish with a snack of homemade spice cake and blueberries to commemorate North American Indigenous food sources.
