Can you help us?

In order to keep our grounds looking beautiful, there are several outdoor projects that should be completed before snow flies. Can you help with one or more?
Bittersweet needs to be cut out from some bushes. Branches and bushes along the Medicine Woods trail should be trimmed back. A fox hole under the barn needs to be barricaded off with chicken wire. Once the leaves have fallen, the parking lots and lawns will require raking.
Inside projects awaiting attention are: Cleaning, painting and some light carpentry work in Bud's house to prepare it for leasing.
If you can help with any of these projects, even if it's just for an hour or two, we would be extremely grateful. Please let Barbara know your preference and available date at: [email protected]. Thank you for your assistance!

Thank you to Mr John for his knowledgeable tour. We have all decided to come back in the Spring and do it again. Thank you to the whole staff for accomdating our large group. We are blessed to have such a great museum in our state.

Hello to all the good people at Mt.Kearsarge! Looking forward to a great powwow today!
Is there a date when the museum will be open to visitors?
For those of you who don’t know me, I am Hears Crow, a Storyteller sharing Tales from the Longhouse. These are traditional Native American stories, mostly from along the East coast of Turtle Island. It has been my privilege to tell at MKIM’s annual powwow, but things are different now so I am Live Streaming stories at 3:00 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the next several weeks. Join us for some fun, company, and good stories until we can meet on the trail
Love you guys up nh
Such a treat to share time with Andy today at the Little Bull in York. Maine!
NATIVE POWWOW
I bought a miniature birch bark canoe from a vendor at the Mt. Kearsarge pow-wow in July, (father and son team, they also make full-size canoes, too), but neglected to get a business card from them. Would you have information on this vendor? Thanks! πŸ˜ƒ
I thought you might enjoy my corner display which includes art from your museum and powwows. My walking stick. A birch bag. My dancing stick. The Indian head clock was made by me in ceramics in 1976. Thank you for such fine work.
Many thanks goes out to the Bullock Family, and all those involved for helping to put on a GREAT pow-wow this past weekend! We always have fun there, and are grateful to be asked back year after year! Despite the terrible heat and humidity, we managed to still have a good time, met some great people and even got to dance some, too! Thanks again...Creator keep you all safe til we met again on the pow-wow trail! :)
