Annawon Weeden is an activist, storyteller, dancer, and tribal mentor of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe. He grew up on the Narragansett reservation in south coastal Rhode Island, where he was instructed on the traditional dances & customs of New England natives throughout his entire life. Join us as Annawon shares his cultural knowledge through an interactive solo performance. Travel back through time to the first encounter, learn about the myriad contributions Native peoples have made throughout history, and witness indigenous dance, language, and storytelling. Annawon was awarded a congressional honor as culture bearer for the entire New England region in recognition of his continued efforts for cultural preservation and to correct misinformation and misrepresentation of Indigenous people.
