The screening of Little Caughnawaga: To Brooklyn and Back, an exploration of the Mohawk community in Brooklyn, New York, that flourished between 1920 and 1960, takes place on Wednesday, June 27. National Aboriginal Day celebrations in Springer Market Square today include teachings, shawl dancing, singing, children’s crafts, a sacred fire and the big drum. National Aboriginal Day celebrates cultures and contributions of Canada’s First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
