In recognition of November being Native American Heritage Month, our next OurStoryBridge Inc. story share is called Learning the Language of the Land told by Ionah Scully. Part of Adirondack Mountain Club’s OurStoryBridge Project, ADK Voices, the story is told from the perspective of Ionah Scully, a First Nation Syracuse PhD candidate, as she completes hiking the Adirondacks High Peaks 46 and reflects on her connection to the land and her ancestors. To listen to this story in its entirety, please visit the following link: https://app.memria.org/stories/public-story-view/dafc6acab8b04bb89fd1e3c83ecd962d/
The Adirondack Almanack will share stories written by those who live, work, and play in the ADK, courtesy of OurStoryBridge Inc. These stories, which will be a combination of current and past events, people, outdoor activities and more, will be published on a weekly basis. The stories will focus on various locations situated in the Adirondack region, including the High Peaks, the town of Keene, and many other areas around the Park. Story topics include arts & culture, catastrophes, work, people, outdoor activities, daily life, community, and natural & man-made environments.
