Saturday, May 20th, is the date for the annual Brothertown Indian Nation elections. Be sure to vote at the BINCC or return your absentee ballot by mail.

While the date has yet to be set, Joanna Brooks, author of The Collected Writings of Samson Occom, Mohegan, has agreed to do a live online presentation for Brothertown Forward!!! Stay tuned for more details.
Finally, the first annual Brothertown powwow was held at the BINCC this past Saturday. Judging from the pictures and comments, a great time was had by all.
