Mishi-maya-gat

Mishi-maya-gat is the Algonquin term for “Great Trail,” a network of foot paths created by the indigenous tribes of New England. The site of the MCC campus is along one of these great trails, which led to the naming of Great Path as the road leading  into campus. It is in this spirit of historical and cultural significance that the performing arts series takes its name.
