This week we have some exciting new content for our viewers. Seth Rutherford of 253 Farmacy, gave a cannabis educational lecture at Greenfield Savings Bank and MCTV was there to record. 253 Farmacy is a new local marijuana dispensary and Seth’s goal with his talk was to educate people about how to safely and responsibly consume cannabis products, as well as how to stay in compliance with new laws and protocols. It was a fascinating insight to a new emerging industry, and gave Seth an opportunity to express 253 Farmacy’s dedication to educating the community about safe and responsible cannabis use. The video is available now on montaguetv.org under ‘Latest Videos’.
For over a decade Greenfield Community College has been celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior. The event has expanded over the years, and the 2020 marks the largest to date.

This week on Montague Community TV, we present a momentous occasion captured on video.

At our Latest Videos page, or on channel 17, you can watch the Erving Library Groundbreaking Ceremony, an event to initiate the library construction process, which is kicking off after years in the planning phase.

To Senator Jo Comerford, who was present for the dedication, it represents "a town that is invested in a long and beautiful planning process" and an investment from the state on the community level to lift up the "vital services" provided by libraries.

When in do your daily life do you get to send a message to somebody indirectly, without worrying about whether they’ll confront you about it? In the presentation “Talking Cloths: Kangas of East Africa,” Nell Koenings and Peggy Hart explain how women in East Africa engage in this kind of communication through fashion.

Kangas are cloths, diverse in pattern and color, that women in East African cultures wear over clothes and on the head. Many are printed with words on a small section—the kanga’s “name.” Sometimes the name will be cordial— something like “Happy Holiday”—but other times they will be thought-provoking (“Don’t travel on someone else’s star”) or even upsetting (“What kind of person you are, that you don’t like your neighbor”).

Kangas are given and received, and also often bought by the woman who intends to wear them, so they are open to a lot of self expression. Many people will try to infer the intended meaning of the kanga’s name based on who gave it or where (and around whom) it is worn. If a woman wears a kanga to send a message to someone she’s spending time with, she may alleviate shyness about sending the message by wearing the kanga inside out or cover the name to make it ambiguous whether they wore it in order to send a message or just because they liked the pattern. Many kangas are produced on a large enough scale that their name can be identified by men and women just by seeing the pattern. Culturally, it’s considered rude to ask a woman the meaning of wearing her kanga, as well as the meaning intended in giving a kanga as a gift.

To learn more about kangas, visit our website at montagetv.org and find the presentation in our Latest Videos section, or look for it in our TV schedule. You can also check out the exhibit Talking Cloth: Kangas from East Africa at the Great Falls Discovery Center, on display through February 8.

December 17-21, 2018
Two weeks ago, we highlighted a recent video available on our website, "Beaver Moon Gathering 2018." Hartman Deetz's talk at this event detailed the contemporary struggle of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe fighting for their land, and its historical context in the theft of Wampanoag children, language, and land for the past 400 years in a series of events which Deetz describes as amounting to genocide. Continuing in this vain, we'd like to describe how this video makes connections between the struggle of the Mashpee Wampanoag and the resolution to change the Massachusetts State Flag and Seal.

At the start of the video, historian David Detmold presents his research on the Massachusetts State Flag and Seal, which he conducted at the state archives to understand its symbolism: Does it honor Native Americans, as so many claim? Or is there a good reason for the objections to the flag?

Detmold found that the flag depicts a native American wearing the belt of Metacomet, the famed Wampanoag leader who was beheaded at the conclusion of King Philip's War, his head mounted on display in Plymouth for over two decades afterward. (This happened years Metacomet's brother Wamsutta was found dead suddenly, after Wamsutta refused to bow to the overseas crown, as Deetz informs us later in the video). After Metacomet's death, his wife and son were sold into slavery.

Above the depiction of the Native American wearing Metacomet's belt is a hand wielding the broadsword of Miles Standish. This combination of symbols speaks for themselves, but Detmold spells it out for us in more plain terms. He compares the flag of Massachusetts to the racist Confederate flag of Mississippi and says we must demand that Massachusetts "no longer symbolize White Supremacy for the rest of the nation."

Four towns in Franklin County, Detmold informs us, have already approved a resolution for the replacement of the Massachusetts State Flag and Seal.

In the keynote speech by Hartman Deetz following Detmold's presentation, Deetz stresses the importance of symbolism. He asks, knowing the genocidal acts toward the Wampanoag nation and the celebratory attitude toward these acts embodied in the flag, "What kind of people are we building? People who have compassion and treat each other as human beings? Or people who dehumanize one another, to gain as much as they can for themselves?"

The problems we are facing in the world today, from climate change to the fight for native sovereignty, Deetz suggests, require a people who can make decisions that are not based on greed, and by people who are willing to hold those in power accountable.

That concludes up our feature! Beaver Moon Gathering 2018 was co-sponsored by the Nolumbeka Project, the Department of Conservation and Recreation, and the New England Peace Pagoda. Catch more of our latest videos at https://montaguetv.org/p/76/Latest-Videos!

The Beaver Moon Gathering 2018 video is now available on our website! The event, co-sponsored by the Nolumbeka Project, the Department of Conservation and Recreation, and the New England Peace Pagoda, brought to light connections between two contemporary struggles: the land dispossession of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe by the Federal Government, and the resolution to change the Massachusetts State Flag and seal. In his talk "Stolen Identities: the Mashpee Wampanoag, Defined out of Inheritance," documented in the video, Hartman Deetz situates these matters historically, describing the theft of Wampanoag children, language, and land in a series of events over the past 400 years.

According to Deetz, the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe owns about 1% of their original land. Have you ever heard the myth that Native Americans simply had no conception of land ownership before white settlers came and divided land into property? Deetz breaks down that myth, explaining how the Wampanoag had shared land use agreements and land transactions that pre-existed white settlers. These transactions were later translated into deeds to protect their legitimacy in the eyes of colonial government.

In 1790, Deetz tells us, a law was enacted that only the U.S. Federal Government could make land transactions with tribes. These laws were not enforced however as the land continued to be chipped away. In the late 19th Century, the Massachusetts State Government directly broke this law and went against the will of the people when it made Mashpee a town and made tribe members citizens of Massachusetts.

In recent months, the Federal government has tried to take away land from the Mashpee Wampanoag. It's roughly 300 acres, which Deetz describes as the size of a large shopping mall or sports stadium. The rationale by the Federal Government, according to Deetz, is that the Mashpee Wampanoag do not meet the definition of Native written into law in the 1930s, due to insufficient land ownership--thanks to the illegal actions of the state government in the late 19th century.

Deetz highlights the violence of this progression of events, among other egregious acts which have affected the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe--including the separation of children from families, children's native language being taken away in boarding schools, and the selling of children into slavery overseas.

With a more hopeful tone, Deetz describes how it is through resistance and "sticking together" that the Mashpee Wampanoag are still here, and brought up efforts to keep the Mashpee Wampanoag reservation intact, including the Mashpee Reservation Reformation Act.

For more about Deetz connects this narrative with the resolution to replace the Massachusetts state flag and seal, keep an eye out for the news from Montague Community TV in the next two weeks, when we wrap up this feature. In the meantime, hungry minds can watch the video at https://montaguetv.org/p/76/Latest-Videos!

Daylight Savings has ended! Luckily, Montague TV is here to help you savor local festivities through the chilly, dark evenings ahead.

-Footage from the 3rd Annual Migration Festival, a night of music, food and dance at the Great Falls Discovery Center. This event was sponsored in partnership between Montague Catholic Social Ministries (MCSM), the Guatemalan Art and Cultural Connection, the Massaschusetts Cultural Council Department of Conservation and Recreation, and the Discovery Center. Wondering how it all began? Lorna and Imre Kepes have a business buying Guatemalan artists' work and selling it throughout New England (The Kepeses have stated that the artists' usual market is of a seasonal, tourist-driven nature). After they shared this art with immigrant families who are a part of MCSM programming, many of whom are of Mayan descent, mothers from a playgroup collaborated with Lorna on a plan to start the first Migration Festival in 2016.
-Interviews from the Sustainability Fair at Amherst Town Common, kicking off with a message from MassSave on ways to keep your home insulated and energy efficient (visit MassSave.org to learn more!).

This week, look for "Making African Dolls with Belinda Lyons Zucker" on channel 17, or find it at montaguetv.org/p/76/Latest-Videos. It'll be a real treat if you do.

This video documents an event (2/17/18) at Greenfield Savings Bank where community members were invited to make Ode to Spring dolls with Belinda Lyons Zucker, a very skilled local artist. Watch this video to see Lyons Zucker provide support for event attendees in their diverse expressions of Ode to Spring dolls at the event; to see her present her doll Miss Cora, explaining how she made Miss Cora and the meaning behind her choices; and to hear intimate conversations with Lyons Zucker about the use of dolls to stand in place of departed loved ones in African cultures. Lyons Zucker says she learned a great deal about the use of African dolls from researcher Elisabeth Cameron, who has a book called Isn't S/He a Doll: Play and Ritual in African Culture.

To see more of Lyons Zucker's work, visit picturetrail.com/beezdolls. You can contact her about handmade dolls and dollmaking parties at beezartdolls(at)gmail.com or 617-818-1970. Belinda Lyons Zucker also has a gallery in Shelburne Falls you can visit--the Artisan Gallery, which is not open on Tuesdays. Check it out if you can!
