In 2009, Robert published his first book “Da Goodie Monsta”, an illustrated children’s book based on a dream his son 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.

Robert is a fire keeper and organized the Annual Wampanoag Medicine Fire from 2001 to 2010.  The Medicine Fire traveled between different Native communities.  It was hosted in Mashpee, Assonet, Hassanainsett (Nipmuck Nation) and Boston (North American Indian Center Of Boston).

Robert was the director of the “Menz Wetu Project.”  This project consisted of five instructors and 23 Mashpee Wampanoag tribal youth who constructed a 32’ foot longhouse on their reservation in Mashpee.  The longhouse is still in use.

Today Robert continues writing, painting, and working with people. He is a fire keeper and a keeper of oral traditions.  He is currently working with the Massachusetts Bureau of Substance Abuse and Services developing Native youth drug prevention booklets and curriculum.  To date two booklets are in use, “Coming Home” and “Stories and Poems For Eastern Native Families.

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 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.
