“Tales of a Forgotten Day:” Myth and Memory at Lover’s Leap

This presentation explores the creation of the “Legend of Weantinaug” – a story associated with the falls at Lover’s Leap State Park in New Milford – and how it has shaped our perceptions about Native people and their place within the landscape.

Join Institute for American Indian Studies Assistant Director and Exhibit Curator Paul Wegner for a discussion on the archaeological and historical research at this site, as well as projects underway to uncover the accurate Indigenous history of the area known to Algonkian speaking peoples as Metichewan.
