Gay Head Clay as Tourist Art 11 - 4
Join tribal member Woody Vanderhoop as he demonstrates the unique Aquinnah Wampanoag art of layering the colored clay from the Gay Head cliffs into glass containers. These were made during the 19th century to sell to tourists who came to visit the Lighthouse and the Cliffs, and are still being made today. Free with admission.
LAST DAY!! "Captured 1614" is an exhibit by Wampanoag people and sponsored by Plymouth 400. It shows the little known history of the kidnappings and enslavement of Wampanoag people in the early 17th century. Please come visit if you have not seen this powerful exhibit.
