Past Exhibit

Mohican Miles

The exhibit covers a wide range of topics including an overview of Mohican history, the Tribe’s historic relationship with The Trustees, information about the community today, the work of the Historic Preservation Office in the homelands, and displays of historic objects belonging to the Tribe.

The Tribe curated and designed the exhibit from the archives of the Arvid E. Miller Memorial Library Museum, which houses the largest collection of Mohican documents and artifacts in the world. Trudy Fadding, of Stockbridge, through a fellowship at Williams College where the Tribe maintains a Tribal Historic Preservation Extension Office, worked locally with the Tribe’s office to develop the exhibit content.

As a result of an agreement with the Trustees, the Stockbridge-Munsee Community will maintain exhibit materials in the Carriage House, the separate exhibit room behind the Mission House, for the next 4 years. This space formerly held many objects belonging to the Mohican people which were purchased by Mabel Choate, the founder of the Mission House. Recently, many of these same objects have been repatriated back to the Tribe after nearly a century of separation.
