Many moons ago, Native Americans followed the Athawominee, or the Path of the Armed ones, to their hunting grounds where deer, bear and other animals had fattened on summer and autumn foods. Guided by the light of the Hunter's Moon, we will walk in the footsteps of these early people, remembering how nature guided their daily lives.
