Colonization and the Wampanoag Story with Linda Coombs (Plymouth)

April 16 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Join us with author Linda Coombs for a discussion and Q&A of her book Colonization and the Wampanoag Story. Linda Coombs (Aquinnah Wampanoag) is an author and historian from the Wampanoag Tribe of Aquinnah, and lives in the Wampanoag community of Mashpee on Cape Cod, MA. Intended for children ages 10 and up but children ages 6 and up welcome.
About the book: From its “discovery” by Europeans to the first Thanksgiving, the story of America’s earliest days has been carefully misrepresented. Told from the perspective of the New England Indigenous Nations that these outsiders found when they arrived, this is the true story of how America as we know it today began.
This event has been developed with a donation from the Jennifer Kane Scholarship and Charitable Trust. Each child who attends will receive a copy of Linda’s book. Please register each child HERE who would like a book individually so we can insure we have enough.
