Freedom’s Way will host a Connecting Communities Walk & Talk at the Sarah Doublet Forest in Littleton, in honor and celebration of the Women’s Vote Centennial, Native Heritage Month, and women who have impacted America.
We will be joined on our walk by Quiet Storm, the daughter of Chief Caring Hands, the Sagamore of the Nashobah-Natick-Ponkapoag Praying Indians. Quiet Storm is of the royal family and a descendant of Chief Tahattawan, and will talk about her Nashobah people and their Nashobah lands while we walk the spiritual heart of the old plantation together. She also has a family connection to Sarah Doublet herself through Chief Tahattawan and will speak about Sarah, as well.
The Sarah Doublet Forest Walk & Talk is cosponsored by the Littleton Conservation Trust and the Littleton Historical Society. Don MacIver, president of the Conservation Trust, will talk about Edith Jenkins and Fanny Knapp, the two women who graciously deeded the 96 acres of what we now call the Sarah Doublet to the trust.
Daniel V. Boudillion, Littleton historian and author, will assist leading the Walk & Talk with Quiet Strom and Don. Dan’s work focuses on Native Nashobah history and early Littleton history, and he has made a special study of the Sarah Doublet Forest.
