The “Our”Story: 400 Years of Wampanoag History exhibit is on display at the Aquinnah Cultural Center on Martha’s Vineyard through October 12, 2019. The Aquinnah Cultural Center supports the ongoing exploration of Wampanoag culture and serves as a place for the Wampanoag people to express their beliefs and lifeways, as well as a place for visitors to learn about their cultural heritage.
“Our”Story: 400 Years of Wampanoag History is expanded each year leading up to 2020 with additional pieces of Wampanoag history, and will travel throughout the region. The latest chapter is 5th in a series of what will become 7 chapters and is called “Governance.” The unique style of governance practiced by the Wampanoag and other Algonquin nations was so appealing to the founding fathers of the United States that many elements are reflected in the constitution.
