Sowams: Helen Tjader talk with video by Nat Rea

Helen Tjader spoke to BPS earlier this year on Sowams’s past as the home of the Pokanoket (Wampanoag) people long before the first Europeans settled here as part of the Plymouth Colony. She has called on all of us to work to establish a National Heritage district acknowledging the Pokanoket heritage of the Sowams area.

A version of this talk has been set to beatiful natural video footage by nature photographer Nat Rea, showcasing the natural beauty of Sowams:
