Over nine years ago Tribal Citizen Stanley Dutra wanted to find a way to formally remember, celebrate and honor our family and friends that have passed on to the spirit world. With that purpose Ancestor’s Day was created. Nine years later our Old Indian Meeting House Committee is pleased to continue this annual event and will be hosting the 9th Annual Ancestor’s Day on Saturday, September 22.
The day will open at 11:00 a.m. at the Old Indian Meeting House. Following the service there will be a potluck at the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Community and Government Center.
This is a day for Tribal Citizens and family to spend with their ancestors with time set aside for cleaning gravesites and sharing stories of our loved ones. The Old Indian Meeting House Committee will also have a variety of bulbs available for planting in honor of our ancestors.
