The 2024 Official Brothertown Annual Calendar

This is the Brothertown of Events, Meetings, and Gatherings for 2024.

We apologize for the awkwardness of the formatting, but we chose to try to fit it on one page as a quick reference to the entire year. However, it is so full of events in 2024 that this was the best way we could organize it. Now, every Brothertown member has an easy way to keep up with the tribe! Download it to your computer or phone for easy access. Members can view upcoming events on the website as well.

Additionally, later this month, we will be finishing the complete annual 2024 calendar (in Calendar format) that many have asked for again – which includes all events as well as the important dates of our tribe and ancestors going back hundreds of years included in each month. We will post when this is finished later this month.

New Article on Samson Occom and BIN hymn singing

Another fascinating article by Brad Dubos, a member of the board of Calumet and Cross, scholar, and a long-time friend of the Brothertown appeared in American Literature (Duke University Press).

Abstract: Brad’s article traces a long trajectory of hymnic placemaking within the Brothertown Indian Nation from the late eighteenth century to the present day. Since their tribe’s inception, Brothertown people have repurposed the forms and rituals of Christian hymnody in order to maintain connections to ancestral homelands, navigate and interpret unfamiliar terrain, and construct and shape tribal spaces. Samson Occom’s (Mohegan/Brothertown) A Choice Collection of Hymns and Spiritual Songs; Intended for the Edification of Sincere Christians, of all Denominations (1774) cultivated this distinctive mode of placemaking within the Native community that formed at Brothertown, New York
