First Light Flashback

“This event, “First Light Flashback” is one in a series of programs, productions, and study groups funded by MASS Humanities and the MA Cultural Council through the MLK Action Team of NIA in partnership with Wellfleet Historical Society and Museum and other generous donors. The events are entitled “Building Relationship, Building Equity: Acknowledging the Continuing Presence of Wampanoag on Cape Cod.”

Take a walk-through time. Feel the sense of freedom that can only be found prior to colonization. Experience the dynamics of what it was like to take part in the first encounter of Europeans arriving to be discovered by the inhabitants of Turtle Island. Hear more from Squanto and how helpful he truly was. Witness the ferocity of an agitated King Phillip. See how slavery impacted the New England region as well as how the whaling also shaped the identity of New England tribes today.

Dependent on audience participation. Theatrical role play, with an educational time travel experience.

With ancestry representing his Pequot & Narragansett lineage, Annawon Weeden is also an enrolled member of his mother’s Mashpee Wampanoag community of Cape Cod.

Free and all are welcome!
