Photo Details

  • Title: Sacred Smoke
  • State/Province/Region (required): Massachusetts

  • Description: In 1676, English settlers under a Captain Turner perpetrated the Falls Massacre, in which 300 Native American men, women and children were slaughtered. The town named after him has never prospered and some claim that its negative karma might be the result of that deed. In 2003, Native American elders and the town's selectboard met together at the massacre site for a ceremony of atonement and forgiveness. Sage was burnt and participants, such as this gentleman, were smudged in ritual cleansing. Since then, Turners Falls is undergoing a slow, but steady revitalization.
  • Brief Directions: 95 miles west of Boston on Rt 2. Turn left and go over the bridge.
  • Notes: None.
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Gear: Nikon F-4
