Peter White Fox and Loril Moondream of Medicine Mammals will present at this year's last Brown Bag Concert on Friday, August 6th from 12:30-1:30 at Butterfield Park in Orange. The frequent performers at Wheeler Memorial Library programs will (with help from the audience) build a wickiup--a traditional home that's really fun to build. The program will include some outreach with the animals and then some sing along with both traditional and and contemporary Native American music. The Brown Bag Concert series is presented by the Orange Business Association and supported by the Orange Cultural Council.
Medicine Mammals is a non-profit wildlife rehabilitation organization in Wendell, MA. The group was founded by Loril, a White Mountain Apache whose goal is to teach people to live in harmony with wild animals. The organization is dedicated to the Native American philosophy that all life is sacred. Following this philosophy, Loril and Peter raise orphaned and injured wildlife for hoped-for release back into nature. From their Native American heritage and philosophies, Medicine Mammals create unique programs in order to continue their work with wildlife. All proceeds from their programs go to pay for the provisions needed to care for their rescued animals.
