L.I.N.K. Educational Series

The 2024 Educational Series brings to life Wampanoag elders and teachers– a personal exploration of a range of topics.

L.I.N.K (Linking Indigenous & Non-Indigenous Knowledge) is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness among Cape Cod residents of the contributions and painful history of the original people of the land where we live. We conduct programs that provide an educational forum for the Cape Cod community. All programs are held in collaboration with the Wampanoag Tribal members and other like-minded organizations. This series highlights the beauty of the Wampanoag culture and reveals the history of settler colonialism. Our mission of truth-telling seeks repair and ways to move forward together in relationship.
