Howard Treadwell

Visiting Poospatuck and working with the Unkechaug Nation has been very educational in learning the history of the tribe but also in meeting the individuals that comprise it.  Without the individual voice, the whole is not complete, and vice-versa.  I had the good chance of meeting Howard Treadwell, a slam poet whose raw style captures emotions and ears from deep down, at the Unkechaug grounds.  Listen to his poem about his grandfather here, and come back for future posts from this talented artist.
