September 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDTFree
Darius Coombs, Cultural & Outreach Coordinator for Education for the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe
The weeku (sometimes “wetu”) for Indigenous Nations of the Northeast has been used for thousands of years. They are homes that could be as small as a six-person family home to as large as a football field. Come join Darius Coombs (Mashpee Wampanoag), who has been constructing these homes for over 30 years for numerous Indigenous communities, for an illustrated talk. He has trained Indigenous folks in the full meaning of a weeku and its usage. Darius has also done numerous presentations of the Indigenous history of cultures of the Northeast. Please come and enjoy the fun and educational experience on the true meaning of a weeku.
