Too often the story of the 1621 Thanksgiving is told from the Pilgrims’ point of view, and when the Wampanoag, who partook in the feast too, are included, it is usually in a brief or distorted way.

 In search of the Native American perspective, we need to look to Plymouth, Massachusetts where the official first Thanksgiving took place and where today the Wampanoag (the rarely mentioned tribe that the pilgrims encountered in 1621) side of the story can be found.

The Wampanoag Culture has been part of the Massachusetts and Rhode Island region for thousands of years. During this program, we will learn how the culture thrived and life was normal before interruption. We will also learn how interruption happened and its consequences on the people. This will include disease, slavery, placed on religion, and war to name a few. With this said there have been many accomplishments made to keep the Wampanoag Culture alive and progressive.

These positive actions include the recovery of the language, recovery of Material Culture, recovery of self-pride, and many other examples. Please join in and enjoy the ride through the centuries in Wampanog history.

Presenter: Darius Coombs, Director of Wampanoag and Eastern Woodlands Research and Interpretive Training at Plimoth Patuxet for over 30 years. He has spoken on Indigenous History at numerous conferences and is the winner of the 2015 Excellence Award from the New England Museum Association.
