If you’ve passed by the Little Mystic Boat Slip in Charlestown recently, you may have noticed a burning canoe, or a mishoon.
The smoldering mishoon is part of an Indigenous ceremony that was performed in Boston on Oct. 31 for the first time in centuries.
Curious about the tradition? Check out this interview with the project leaders + visit the boat slip on Terminal Street to speak with tribe members, who will be on site to educate the public.
The canoe will be available for viewing through ~Sunday, Nov. 13.
