“A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE”
— Holly Wigmore, The Doughnut UK
Experience the story of four centuries of the Wampanoag People in this beautiful play filled with song, dance, and spoken word.
The Wampanoag people have been stewarding their land for over 10,000 years across several eastern states, including Massachusetts. After colonization, their voice was silenced. We Are The Land is part pageant, part play, where audiences will hear directly from Wampanoag people telling their story of their relationship to the soil, how it was taken away, and how the nation has re-established themselves in a way that both honors their ancestors and looks toward the future. In collaboration with a multi-talented cast of Wampanoag artists, actors, historians and storytellers, Mashpee Wampanoag tribal members, Siobhan Brown, Hartman Deetz and Kitty Hendricks have brought this incredible event to fruition. After its premiere in Plymouth, UK, We Are The Land comes to Boston for a very special two performance engagement.
