Speaker to present Native American view
Evan Pritchard, a Mi’kmaq descendant and historian, will present a Native American perspective on the humpback whale that appeared in the Hudson River last year, the first whale to be seen in the river in more than two centuries.
Pritchard, who will speak at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, at the Oak Vino Wine Bar in Beacon, will discuss what the sighting means, our relationship with whales and what’s happening with whales around the world. The free talk is part of the Beacon Institute’s Eco Café series. See bire.org.
