Pokanoket Nation teach-in with Po Wauipi Neimpaug
Join the Sagamore of the Pokanoket Nation, Po Wauipi Neimpaug, for a teach-in on the history and current initiatives of the Poknokets. The teach-in will be on Wednesday, July 19th from 6-7:30pm at the FANG office at 545 Pawtucket Ave in Pawtucket, RI.
The Pokanoket Nation made first contact with the pilgrims who landed at Plymouth. Then a generation later the Pokanokets led King Phillips War against the colonizers. After the war the colonizers made it illegal and punishable by death to say the word Pokanoket. But the Pokanoket's are still here and organizing for their sovereignty. More about the Pokanoket nation is below.
There is suggested donation of $5-$15 for this event. All funds raised will be used to support initiatives of the Pokenoket Nation.
