Mount Greylock Celebrates Season with Native American Festival

This past Saturday (5/28/2016), hundreds of day-trippers and some overnighters made their way to the summit of Mount Greylock, rising above the hot, humid air of Memorial Day weekend in the Berkshires and gazing out over views of three different states.

A group of Abenaki, along with representatives from a few other Native American nations, were also there. They evoked the name and spirit of Chief Gray Lock at the summit with a tipi raising, a drumming circle with the Black Hawk Singers, and tales spun by Abenaki storyteller Chief Roger Longtoe Sheehan.
