Nature Night: Native American History and Land Use in Columbia County

December 17 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EST


CLC welcomes Heather Bruegl, Director of Cultural Affairs for the Stockbridge Munsee Community, to Nature Night! At this month’s Nature Night, we’ll learn from Heather as she shares the history of the Stockbridge Munsee band of Mohicans. The Mohicans lived in what we now refer to as Columbia County before they were driven west to Wisconsin. Heather will discuss the tribe’s history here and the traditional ways Native Americans take care of the land, stewarding it for the next seven generations.

Heather Bruegl is a member of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin. She is a graduate of Madonna University in Michigan and holds a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in U.S. History. A curiosity of her own heritage lead her to Wisconsin, where she has researched the history of the Native American tribes in the area. While Heather calls Michigan home, she has recently moved to Wisconsin and is now the Director of Cultural Affairs for the Stockbridge Munsee Community. In addition to that she also currently travels and speaks on Native American history, including policy and activism.
