Cyrus Dallin created Menotomy Hunter, the crowning jewel of Robbins Memorial Garden, to serve as an enduring tribute to the Massachusett people whose land once encompassed present day Arlington. Learn how Indigenous people thrived in this rich environment for thousands of years, and about the important work the Massachusett Tribe of Ponkapoag (descendants of these first people) is doing to preserve and share their culture, language, and traditions.
