As part of its Native Cultural Initiative, Friends of Pleasant Bay is collaborating with Orleans Conservation Trust to offer several free walks this winter and spring illuminating the Indigenous history and culture in the Pleasant Bay area. Led by Noogaahsjun, a descendent of the Nauset tribe and member of the Wolf Clan of the Wampanoag Nation, we are excited to offer the first of these walks in January 2024.
Located in the heart of Potonumaquut, Kent’s Point was once a stronghold for local Indigenous families who wished to remain within their territory. On this walk, we will immerse ourselves in the history of this area and its people, from pre-contact through its evolution as the largest Indian Reserve on Cape Cod—and finally to its demise, exploring how a society was almost lost.
We ask that participants come open-minded and prepared to confront a challenging recounting of our history.
Limited participation; this walk is now full.
