Mishi-maya-gat

Mishi-maya-gat is the Algonquian term for “Great Trail System,” a network of foot paths created by the indigenous tribes of Connecticut. Within this system of trails, a “Great Path” connected one region with another. The site of the MCC campus is along one of these great paths, which led to the naming of Great Path as the street leading  into campus. It is in this spirit of historical and cultural significance that the arts series takes its name.

Note: The series resumes in September 2016.  Please check this web page over the summer for updates on the Fall events.
