On Saturday, November 24 the sounds of an intertribal social – complete with drumming, singing, round dancing and the hum of good conversation – mixed with the smell of home cooked dishes will fill the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Community and Government Center as the Tribe will be hosting its annual fall social. The potluck social will be held from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the gymnasium and is open to all tribal citizens, family, friends and neighboring tribes.
Councilwoman Winnie Johnson-Graham who organized the social this year truly sees this as a community event. “There’s something special about our fall social. You come in on a cool fall afternoon and can immediately feel the warmth of our community,” said Winnie. “It’s at events like this that you’re reminded just how special it is to be Mashpee.”
In addition to the drumming and food, the annual social provides space for local vendors to sell their crafts. If you are interested in a vendor table, drumming or would just like more information, please contact Tribal Councilwoman Winnie Johnson-Graham at Edwina.firstname.lastname@example.org or at (508) 645-8365.
