Forgotten Trunk In the Attic - Sunday Speaker Series Jan. 14

The Harmonie Verein in Augusta, 5333 Hackman Rd., is hosting a Sunday Speaker Series in 2024. The series starts with a unique look at history with “Forgotten Trunk in the Attic,” presented by special guest Galen Gritts on January 14 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $7 and can be purchased online at www.augustaharmonieverein.org/shows.
Missouri, like most states in the center of the U.S., has no extant (existing) tribes, like some other states have. Therefore, the knowledge of either the history of Natives or the experience of contemporary Native Americans is one step further removed from people’s consciousness. This presentation starts to remedy this phenomenon by using startling facts as stepping stones to fascinating and forgotten stories.
