About this Grantee

Mr. Smith and his partners introduce students to multiple perspectives, traditions, beliefs, and values of the Pokanoket/Wampanoag tribe. Students participate in a variety of activity stations and workshops led by members of the tribe, including Mr. Smith, and learn aspects of tribal culture and history. After a native arts and crafts demonstration, students have the opportunity to create their own crafts. To demonstrate learning, the project culminates with a student presentation of dance, music, and story telling.
