On Sunday, October 1, from 3 to 5 PM there will be an afternoon celebrating the Bonac culture of Springs, in partnership with The Peter Matthiessen Center and Joanne Friedland Roberts.
The Peter Matthiessen Center is a local non-profit created to preserve the legacy of one of America’s most distinguished writers and naturalists and build upon his transformative work. Peter Matthiessen was an early and eloquent advocate for a more socially just, environmentally sane, and spiritually conscious world.
“THE BONACKERS,” a 60-minute documentary created by Joanne Roberts Productions will be screened. The film tells the continually evolving survival story of The Bonackers, long-time locals who’ve fished and farmed the land and seas on the East End for almost 400 years.
