Wareham Students Debut Regalia at International Day


Following an 8-week regalia-making workshop that the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Education Department hosted for students and parents in the Wareham district, students unveiled their work at the Wareham Public School International Night.

During the regalia making workshop students and parents from Wareham received instruction on sewing and fringing traditional clothing from Melanie Roderick, who teaches language classes and was a wardrobe supervisor at Plimoth Plantation. Indian Education Program Coordinator Kitty Hendricks-Miller organized the workshop and also provided guidance to the students throughout.
