The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Historic Preservation Department (THPD) is pleased to announce a new project that is devoted to the 660 Young Adult Tribal members ages 18-30 that are almost always left out of tribal programs. How many of the 660 have you ever met in person? This project will hold a couple gatherings so you can meet each other; kind of like speed dating (without the romance) so you can at least check each other out in a no pressure space. After everyone is acquainted THPD wants to know what parts of our history and culture you’re interested in learning more about. A professional graphic designer team will work with a small group of five that you select to create a touch screen portable exhibit. This format will present the possibility of creating a sub-domain website where the 660 group can drive the audience from their home and school computers.
Expect a text when and where to meet up. If you didn’t give your current cell number to enrollment text it to 774 327-0182 with your name. THPD also has a new blog and website that will be linked to the 660 Young Adults private Facebook page. This will keep our news fresh with live feeds of group gatherings for those that live too far away to meet up. So stay tuned!
