The Aquinnah Cultural Center has partnered with Plymouth 400 Inc. to bring the "Our" Story: 400 Years of Wampanoag History traveling exhibit. The exhibit will be on display through Sept. 16.
The interactive traveling exhibit, told in the Native voice, shines a light on historic events that had a significant impact on the Wampanoag tribe, its relationship with the Mayflower Pilgrims, and the founding of Plymouth Colony, cornerstone events that shaped America's earliest beginnings. Each year, a new theme is added to the exhibit; "Our" Story debuted in 2014 with "Captured 1614," a critical back story to colonization and the roots of the American holiday, Thanksgiving. "The Messenger Runner" added new context regarding the Wampanoag tribe's communication traditions. The newest panel, titled "The Great Dying," depicts the catastrophic effects of a plague that devastated the Wampanoag nation between 1616 and 1619.
