2019: We're Planning an Awesome Year

Chief Spirit Water says: I'm inviting all Clan Family members and Friends to the Grounds on Sunday, September 8th for a simple family get together from one to five or so in the afternoon. It will be pot luck and we'll fire up the grill. Bring all the kids and the grandparents - it is Grandparents Day! We will just sit around and tell stories and talk and eat and have a lovely day. NO Agenda, no meeting, just a nice, picnic style Family get together. Rain or Shine. I hope you can come

Members and Friends: Our next Meeting/Gathering will be held at the Brunswick Springs on September 28th. For more information, please see our "Upcoming Events" tab. We hope to have a good gathering. Bring music, food, prayers.


Quick Note: We've just located a stack of the Waban Drum CD's - The Clan's Own Drumming CD. Click here for Purchase!

The 30th Inter-tribal Gathering (Powwow)  of The Clan of the Hawk in Evansville, Vermont August 3rd and 4th, 2019 was blessed with beautiful weather, and wonderful friends.

The music of First Light Drum and the Waban Drummers was heard across the grounds as people took part in the Couple’s Dance, Dance for Elders, Dance for Veterans, and the children’s Candy Dance during the 30th Annual Inter-tribal Gathering of the Clan of the Hawk. 

Justin “Thunderbear” Deth, the weekend emcee, also played the drum and flute at intervals. George Larrabee taught Abenaki language lessons in the chapel. Over twenty people were given new Native Names during the Naming Ceremony held by Chief Spirit Water. 

The amazingly pleasant weather and Saturday’s famous Carlson “local caught” fish fry were favorite attractions. Our special Sunday pet parade saw dogs from six pounds to sixty in procession in the Sacred Circle. 

Visitors from North Carolina, Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts and Florida stopped in the refurbished Looking Glass Museum during the weekend. Many little ones conquered their unease in the “touch me museum” and posed for photos with the brown bear and hundred year old tortoise. 

Julia Marden, a member of the Aquinnah Wampanoag Nation, was on hand to show visitors how she makes her famous baskets. She keeps alive the 17th century traditional art of finger weaving, using only her hands to make tightly woven baskets and containers. 

On Sunday morning clan members showed off their short order skills and cooked up a great breakfast and a terrific picnic-style lunch. The grounds were dotted with vendors offering up everything from handmade drums and beaded accessories to Maple Syrup and jewelry. 

When Assistant Chief Dan “Wolf Howling” Duhaime gave the closing prayer, everyone was sad to see the weekend end. It was one of the best Gatherings the Clan has ever held.

The Clan of the Hawk welcomes you to
Our New, New Website

Until March of 2012, we were hosted for free at Officelive.com, but they are no longer offering this service. We are now hosted by Web.com.

We are moving into this new ‘internet headquarters' slowly but surely, and hope you will be patient with our shifting and changing as we get up and running.

This Website change means that we will now be paying annually for our domain name and web space, so if you can help defray any of these new expenses, donations are always welcome.

Clan of the Hawk, Inc. is a federally recognized, all volunteer, non-profit (501(c)(3)organization dedicated to teaching and community service.  All donations are fully tax-deductible and  proof of our status will be gladly provided with any size donation

The Clan of the Hawk welcomes visitors anytime spring through fall with prior arrangements with the Chief. Scout groups, religious groups, family groups seeking peace and a beautiful spot to spend a day or a week camping can arrange this with the Chief. Fees would depend on the services you might need and the length of stay.


If you spot a mistake, please feel free to contact the webmistress on the 'contact us' page.
