TAUNY, Traditional Arts in Upstate New York, invites the community to a special presentation, TAUNY Talk & Taste: “You’ll See Our Tracks”: Raquette River Dams Exhibit Research Talk with Camilla Ammirati and Mary Jane Watson on Thursday, September 7 from 12:00-1:00pm at The TAUNY Center in Canton, NY. The presentation will focus on the oral history project that inspired TAUNY’s current exhibit, “‘Look Down, You’ll See Our Tracks’: Raquette River Dam Stories.” See the images, hear the stories, and learn about how this fascinating part of our regional heritage came into focus over three years of research and exhibit development. Project partner Mary Jane Watson of South Colton will discuss the concentration of dams and powerhouses Niagara Mohawk built around the Colton area in the 1950s and how they transformed the local environment and community life. TAUNY Director of Research and Programs Camilla Ammirati will talk about what the research project entailed, themes and questions that emerged, and stories of fieldwork adventures tracking down project participants—from cold-calling unions to learning firsthand which old logging roads not to use as shortcuts.  


This lunchtime presentation also includes an opportunity to purchase a specially crafted meal by Big Spoon Kitchen (Potsdam, NY), inspired by the themes of the talk. The lunch will be a “Plowman’s Lunch” (including tasty selections of ham, egg, bread, and cheese) to reference the kind of streamlined but satisfying portable meal that would help get someone through a day of work out on a logging or construction site. There is a $5 suggested donation for this presentation and the cost for the lunch is $12 or $10 for TAUNY Friends. Guests can reserve their lunch by Tuesday, September 5th by calling TAUNY at 315-386-4289 or at TAUNY’s online folkstore (https://tauny-folkstore.myshopify.com/products/).


This program is part of both the “‘Look Down, You’ll See Our Tracks’: Raquette River Dam Stories” Program Series and the TAUNY Talk & Taste Series.


TAUNY’s latest exhibit, “‘Look Down, You’ll See Our Tracks’: Raquette River Dam Stories,” tells the stories of people involved in or significantly affected by the construction of the hydroelectric dams and powerhouses along the Raquette River. The exhibit will be on view at The TAUNY Center until October 21, 2017. Additional information about this and other programs in the exhibit program series can be found at tauny.org.


The TAUNY Center is located at 53 Main Street, Downtown Canton, NY. TAUNY, Traditional Arts in Upstate New York, is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people understand and appreciate the folk traditions and local culture of everyday life—present and past—in the North Country. To do so, TAUNY seeks to research and preserve a record of diverse groups, customs and traditions; to recognize and empower traditional arts and artists; to identify and promote regional identity; and to provide opportunities for people of all ages to learn about folklore and culture. More information is available at tauny.org.
