During this program students will experience various aspects of local tribal life and gain respect for the people of the Wampanoag and Massachusetts tribes. We offer 4 stations: 1) The Food Station--see foods that were gathered and grown, and use a rock to grind corn; 2) The Wetu (home) Station--observe how the home was built when you visit our wetu, learn the roles of men and women in the tribe, see animal hides; 3) The Craft Station--discover the items used for decoration, learn about symbolism and make your own story necklace; 4) the Game Station--learn about the importance of play in developing necessary skills, learn wisdom through hearing a legend, and play games; and 5) The Tool station, where students learn what common tools were used and what they were made from. Including a bow drill or friction fire kit.
