The “Our”Story: 400 Years of Wampanoag History exhibit will be on display at the Tantaquidgeon Museum, America’s oldest Native American owned and operated museum, from November 1st through December 20, 2019. The Museum is operated by the Mohegan Tribe.  The exhibit will be located across the street from the Museum at the Mohegan Cultural Preservation Center.

Exhibit hours will be Tuesday-Friday from 10am-4pm. During the week of November 19-22, hours will be extended to 10am-6pm.

The Museum is also planning two special Saturday events:

Saturday, November 16th, 11am-12pm: Children’s Story Hour with Robert Peters from the Wampanoag Tribe, who will read his book, “Da Goodie Monsta” based on a dream his son Robert Junior had when he was three years old. The story depicts a monster that is part lion, part bird, and part dragon wearing roller skates. “Da Goodie Monsta” chases away nightmares. The story introduces the reader to a boy named Shaka who has no dreams at all. Come and learn how Shaka finds his dreams. This event is open to all children ages 5 and up.

Saturday, November 23rd, 10am-6pm:  Plymouth 400 History Day.  Learn the real story of the first Thanksgiving.

The “Our”Story: 400 Years of Wampanoag History exhibit 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.

In 1662, Major Josiah Winslow of Marshfield and 34 others purchased most of what is now Hanson and part of Pembroke from the Wampanoag tribe. The town will be commemorating their 200th anniversary in 2020.
