Indigenous Peoples’ Day Event – October 7, 2023

Malden Reads, in collaboration with the Friends of the Malden River, will be hosting an event honoring Indigenous Peoples’ Day, on Saturday, October 7 at 8:30-12:00 at the Malden River.

Students will have an opportunity to build a “fishweir” (image shown in the attachment), which was how Indigenous people traditionally caught fish in this area. Also, like at the “Words on the Water” event last fall, there will be an opportunity for free canoe rides on the Malden River.
