Plymouth 400
Commemoration

This conference will address the legacy of colonization experienced by Wampanoag and other Native people in the (now) New England area. The conference will be divided into 3 sections:

Day/Section I: discuss what traditional life was like before the time of European contact.

Day/Section II: discuss the processes of colonization, what colonization really is, how it impacted people at the time, and how it is an ongoing process that continues to impact Native people and tribes today.

Day/Section III: discuss what Wampanoag and Native peoples are doing today to carry on culture and tradition and continue as tribal entities.

Day IV: Powwow

Speakers and presenters will include both Native and non-Native scholars and cultural experts, with the emphasis on the primacy of Native voice and the validity of these perspectives and insights on Indigenous people, history, and culture. The Conference will officially close on Sunday with a traditional Powwow to which all are welcome to attend. The Conference will be filmed and recorded so that it may be prepared as a curriculum for classroom use at all levels.

The Embarkation Festival will be a grand cultural and arts festival that will honor the traditions, cuisine, and music of not only the settlers and Wampanoag people but of the diverse population of immigrants who have become the fabric of American life. World music, culinary events, artisan crafts, and cultural exhibits will define the many cultures represented. People will be engaged in America’s story of exploration, immigration, innovation, self-governance, religious expression, and thanksgiving. National and international in scope, the program will include performing groups, chefs, artists, storytellers, and student projects from around the world.

The Wampanoag Ancestors Walk will be led by the Wampanoag tribes of Massachusetts. Placards will be carried with the names of the original 69 villages of the Wampanoag Nation. Participants will pay homage to Massasoit and King Phillip and will stop at designated sites to bless the spots where Wampanoag ancestors walked. The walk will conclude with a drum ceremony and homage to Native souls, followed by a reception.

Pilgrim Hall Museum opens for the season, featuring permanent gallery displays of original 17th-century artifacts that reveal the story of the Pilgrim settlers and the Native Wampanoag people of early Plymouth Colony. The Museum offers three exhibit galleries, changing exhibitions, a superb orientation film, and an unmatched collection of the actual belongings of the Mayflower Pilgrims. From the humble doll of child passenger Mary Chilton, to the sword of Captain Myles Standish, and the well-worn Bible of Governor William Bradford, authentic objects of 17th-century life offer visitors an intimate gateway to the earliest American immigrant experience.

Special exhibition, pathFOUNDERS: Women of Plymouth, on display through March 8th, presents original objects reflecting four centuries of women’s experience and multimedia presentations giving voice to women of early Plymouth Colony, including Susanna White Winslow, Awashonks, Elinor Billington, Priscilla Mullins Alden, Hobbamock’s wife, and Mary Chilton Winslow.

The Town of Hanson 200th Anniversary Committee is hosting the “Our”Story: 400 Years of Wampanoag History exhibit during the month of August. The exhibit is the first of many events that the 200th Anniversary Committee is hosting to enlighten the residents of the history of Hanson. 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.

“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.
