On Saturday afternoon, November 19th, LongHouse Reserve of East Hampton celebrated Native American Heritage Month and the current harvest season with its “Spirit of the Garden: Harvest” event. Co-hosts Megan Chaskey and Scott Chaskey offered some unique experiences for the families attending. Megan performed her Circle of Life Puppet Show, and Scott read “Old Coyote Woman”, followed by group decorating of a Mandala with seeds from the three basic life essentials–corn, beans and squash. Dancers from the Shinnecock Nation performed Native dances to Medicine Songs.
