Celebrate Native American Heritage at the Nowashe Village
Celebrate our second successful season of programming and events at Nowashe Village.
Join us both in Nowashe Village and inside Wood Memorial Library for a variety of educational and eye-opening activities, FREE fun for the whole family in celebration of Native American Heritage Month.
Outside in Nowashe Village, Join Taylor Stasis as she explores the traditional foodways of the Herring Pond Wampanoag Tribal Nation, including hunting, gathering and agricultural practices. Taylor will discus which wild plants, seeds, nuts and fruits were gathered and the major fish and fauna hunted.
Explore the fascinating history and practice of quillwork with Miciah Stasis (Herring Pond Wampanoag) who celebrates and maintains this traditional cultural practice today in her modern art works. Miciah also will discuss the methodology of creating quillwork pieces and the decorative use of natural dyes.
