Thanksgiving & the Wampanoag
This week is the Thanksgiving break, and we wish everyone a pleasant and relaxing holiday. Once you come back there are only three more weeks to go of the semester! If you want to take a break from your usual reading and do something different, we have many books not only on the Mayflower and the "Pilgrims," but we also have books on the Native Americans who met them, for example the Wampanoag of Cape Cod and the Massachusetts coast. (The Wampanoag are still around by the way, here is the link to the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe's website.) Pictured here is Nanepashemet, a Wampanoag dressed in traditional garb.
