December 9, 2014; 7:00 p.m.

Just how did the Native Americans of this region prepare for , and survive, New England winters. It's a question certainly worth asking, especially after last winter. Dana Benner has made a study of the ways of the local tribes and offers great insight into their customs and habits. Being of Native American ancestry himself, he speaks firsthand of the preparations necessary to ensure survival in New England's harsh winter climate.
