Presentation by Wampanoag Educator Annawon Weeden

March 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Wampanoag Educator Annawon Weeden will give a talk from 6–7 p.m. with time for a brief Q & A. The Holocaust and Genocide Center at Bristol Community College sponsors this event.

Annawon has strong ties to the region, as his grandfather grew up in New Bedford and is a product of the Whaling Era.

Born and raised on the Narragansett Tribal reservation in Charlestown, RI, Annawon eventually made his home in his mother’s Wampanoag community in Mashpee, MA.

Annawon dedicates much of his time to visiting schools, colleges, museums, libraries, and corporations as he continues his efforts to correct misinformation and misrepresentation of Indigenous peoples. A powerful speaker and pow-wow emcee, Annawon finds compelling ways to educate and engage an audience. On stage or in the classroom, his ability to share his tribal culture is sought after by institutions such as The Smithsonian, National Geographic, Scholastic, PBS, and many other corporate, educational, and environmental organizations.
